Publisher Description:
Franny K. Stein, Mad Scientist, has always had her eye on world domination, but she has to start somewhere...like her class elections If people voted for her, they were "giving" her all the control she wanted. But Franny's platform doesn't have the same appeal as her competitors who are offering new playground equipment, so she finds another platform...The Frandidate. Made of DNA samples from a dog, a chameleon and a parrot, along with a scrap of carpet (so she'll know where people stand), Franny creates the perfect candidate who says and does exactly what people want to hear But soon her suit starts making promises she knows she won't be able to keep and Franny realizes she might have gone too far. "The Frandidate" will give you everything you want, science, humor and some old fashioned politics

Contributor Bio(s): Benton, Jim: - Jim Benton is the New York Times bestselling writer of the Dear Dumb Diary series and a cartoonist whose unique brand of humor has been seen on toys, television, T-shirts, greeting cards, and even underwear. Franny K. Stein is the first character he's created especially for young children. A husband and father of two, he lives in Michigan, where he works in a studio that really and truly does have creepy stuff in it.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2009 Spring)
Franny is again up to no good, running for class president in her continued effort to take over (at least part of) the world. Franny creates a suit that changes voters' perceptions of her, but it may have evil plans of its own. Predictable but funny, this series will continue to entertain young mad-scientists-in-training.
