This gem of a novel takes
place in Pittsburgh in 1952. Franny Katzenback, while recovering from polio,
reads and falls in love with the brand-new book Charlotte’s Web. Bored and lonely and yearning for a Charlotte of
her own, Franny starts up a correspondence with an eloquent flea named
Fleabrain who lives on her dog’s tail. While Franny struggles with physical
therapy and feeling left out of her formerly active neighborhood life,
Fleabrain is there to take her on adventures based on his extensive reading.
It’s a touching, funny story
set in the recent past, told with Rocklin’s signature wit and thoughtfulness. Download and start listening now!
