CHAPTER ONE FRANNY’S HOUSE
The Stein family lived in the pretty pink house with the lovely purple shutters down at the end of Daffodil Street. Everything about the house was bright and cheery.
But, of course, the outside of a house is never as interesting as what’s going on inside it.
And inside this house, behind the little round upstairs window, something interesting was always going on, because this was the bedroom and laboratory of Franny K. Stein, Mad Scientist.
Last week, for example, Franny developed a giant sea horse, and the day before that she worked on a way to fly based on how bats flap their wings.
Those projects became pretty expensive, so Franny needed to get a piggy bank to save her money in.
Of course, being a mad scientist, she created her piggy bank from a real live pig, which meant that she had to learn all she could about pigs.
This got pretty messy, but she didn’t mind getting messy, because that’s just what happens when you’re doing mad science.
