Martha's ability to speak is impacted when the maker of alphabet soup decides not to include all letters of the alphabet.

Martha is a talking dog. She loses her ability to talk because of corporate wrong-doing and sets things right. Morals include: Do what's right, not what makes the biggest profit, because it does matter. Your family loves you even if you're not special.Martha is a female dog who saves the day, so I think of it as a "strong girl" book, too. And I like to find all the "A" things in Alf's house (it's a nice subtle joke).

Mattha wants to talk again. She finds Alf who has the last can of the alphabet soup with all the letters in it. When she eats it, she can talk again. Granny decides to put all the letters back in the soup. A dog that can talk is funny which is why I like this book.
