Franklin Bean and Bubbie’s Bullies
In the third book of the Franklin Bean early chapter book series, John is settled in his new neighborhood and has a good friend in Addie. But all is not well. His much loved dog, Franklin Bean, goes missing before a dog rescue charity event. Panic follows. And although the bully troubles are different, they’re not over. We hear from Latino superhero Pancho Frijole’s perspective how he works to save victims caught in dangerous situations.
The multicultural cast is in for more surprises and challenges. Addie suspects the real identity of Pancho Frijole, but John can’t see the frijoles for the beans. We meet new bullies, some of the canine variety, including Lucy, a French bulldog with problems that might make her unadoptable. As part of a school assignment, John chooses to work with the canine bullies. But can he find a loving home for a dog with such serious problems?
Two things for sure—danger lurks everywhere for kids and dogs—and Pancho Frijole will try to save the day with teamwork. No matter their ages, readers will come away feeling uplifted and ready to make the world a better place.
