Martha Speaks: Summer Fun Three Stories in Oneby Susan Meddaugh
In Leader of the Pack, Martha the talking dog is understandably upset to discover she’s not part of Helen’s family tree. Should she embrace her wolf heritage and find a pack of her own? In Martha Says It with Flowers, Martha has trouble finding just the right birthday gift for Helen’s grandmother Lucille…meaning not a half-eaten rotten apple. In Pool Party, Alice has a sunscreen malfunction and turns bright orange! Fans of the PBS series Martha Speaks will love this colorful three-story round-up.
