Emmy Swain believes in the magical power of animals to heal and guide the human spirit. Emmy’s creativity was poured into music as a child and young adult. It then spilled into inventing, and eventually into writing. Life lessons linked with fantasy create a book series that any age will enjoy. Emmy has captured this in a world of her own. The Franklin Bean series was born out of her conversations with her own beloved pets to help end the devastating effects of bullying. The single mother has been an inventor, restaurateur, and business owner for over two decades. “Franklin Bean storybooks are created to be lean forward experiences, encouraging children to actively relate the characters’ situations to their real-world,” Swain says. “Intuitively, the words and illustrations reach into the readers’ imaginations, where real learning takes place. Choice allows them to craft their own story.” “That’s the beauty of Franklin Bean’s magic . . . new possibilities emerge.”


  1. Franklin Bean is a delightful book. This story makes you smile and at the same time addresses issues that many children may face, such as moving to a new location, making new friends, attending a new school, bullies, and more. The ending is clever and will have you anticipating the next Franklin Bean adventure. I’ll be keeping my eye out for more Franklin Bean.

  2. Franklin Bean is the coolest dog in the world

  3. I enjoyed the book and my friend read it and said he would like to read more and we are both in our twilight years. Hope a new follow up will appear soon.

  4. LOVE this book! Wish I had a Franklin Bean in my life! 🙂

  5. Comment spoken to grandmother to type: “I loved your book. It was awesome! I liked the dog (giggle giggle). The dog is nice. The ending was good too. The best part of the book was when the dog saved the girl. I think that the boy may have been dreaming or had an active imagination because dogs don’t talk where I live, but it would be really fun if they did. Yeah! I would like to go to school and take my talking dog and nobody else would have one, that would be nice.”

  6. “Meet Franklin Bean” is available NOW on Amazon and will soon be out in Kindle and other digital devices. Thank you!!

  7. I bought 2 copies so that my 7 year old granddaughter and her best buddy can read them. They just started a book club to read and discuss books. Not only does this book address real life issues (bullies, leaving for new homes, stretching money for food, safety on roads to name a few) but it also adds a talking dog/superhero! It reminded me of a book I read in grade school. Miss Molly the Mop. Miss Molly talked when the main character ( a young girl) was about. She was adjusting to being with relatives for the summer and having new glasses…drats. I felt young again reading this book and will recommend it to my friends. I will also get Charlotte and Ellanor to give me feedback for you. Nothing will be as meaningful as the voice of a child …:):)
