Comments The Fran with Four Brains

  • Emily

    "I think maybe we don't have to be excellent at everything. I think we need to pick a couple of things, and we should try to pick the things you really and truly enjoy. And maybe, sometimes, we could just do nothing." Mr. Benton has picked another hot topic - overscheduled children - and turned it into an amusing tale of mad science escapades and misadventures. I like that he allows Franny's mom to learn and grow in this book along with Franny. Kids aren't the only ones that need to learn these [...]

    A short and easy chapter book for students in early elementary school. Franny, a mad scientist, builds some robots to help her with her over-scheduled life. The robots not only play soccer, take bagpipe lessons, and learn gourmet cooking, they also strive for excellence. Of course, Franny's robots take things too far and Franny uses clever creative thinking to defeat the robots. Franny and her mother both learn important lessons: lessons and extra activities can keep you from finding time to enj [...]

  • Carol Evans

    Another great Franny K. Stein adventure. Amber absolutely loves this series, mostly because it’s about a girl who loves science and gross things, just like Amber. Her favorite part of this one was the food ray, one of the Franbot accessories. Amber is almost 9 and this series is a little below her reading level, but that makes it fun. She doesn’t have to worry about the actual reading, she can just breeze through it and really enjoy the story.

  • OscarGuzman

    Overall, I thought this book was amazing because it was realistic fiction and realistic fiction books are my favorite. a reason why I liked the book so much was because Franny K. Stein had created 3 robots that looked so much like her so they could do her extra activities that she didn't have time for so she created one for soccer, one for cooking, and one for her wind pipe lessons classes that she had but after all when they all came back from the activities she saw her mom was so tired because [...]

  • christa

    I mean, I'm not sure that any of these will ever match the power of Frantastic Voyage, but this one about three robot Frannys was a little relatable at least.

  • Brittany

    another fun adventure with Franny k Stein. my son picked this series out at the library at 5 years old and we would take turns reading. now at 7 he flies through the pages but he loves the stories.

  • Dolly

    This is the sixth book in the Franny K. Stein series by Jim Benton. We first discovered this series when we listened to Frantastic Voyage on audio CD. We all thought it was a humorous tale, so we decided to read some of the other books/audio CDs in the series. We listened to this story narrated aloud by Michele O. Medlin on audio CD.This story shows us how Franny figures out how to do more in the day with limited time and energy. I love that Franny and her mother discover that it's good to just [...]

    Like a lot of kids, Franny's doesn't just have homework and mad scientist experiments to keep her busy. She also has soccer, gourmet cooking class, and bagpipe lessons. All this is a little too much for Franny, but her mother wants her to learn new things and to strive for excellence in everything, so Franny finds a way to lessen the load. She creates three Franbots to take over some of her extracurricular activities, telling them that "excellence is the most important thing". This of course end [...]

  • Edward Creter

    Franny K. Stein. Astronomy minded. A girl barely eleven. Gentlemen, we can review her latest adventure. We have the technology. We have the capability to critique her making the world's first bionic foursome. Fran K. will have that foursome. Better than she ever was. Betterronger.fasterbut not cooler! Franny is back with number six, which might as well be her six-million dollar adventured worth every penny! Fran and her beloved Dog Igor want the day to be faster so she can play with her assorted [...]

  • Dena (Batch of Books)

    If you are looking for an early chapter book that breaks the norm, give this series a try. Franny is a mad scientist that kids will love. Kids that enjoy creepy things will especially like this series.When Franny feels overwhelmed with her school and extracurricular activities, she makes a few Franbots to take her place. When Franny decides the Franbots are too active for her mother, they hatch a plan to turn Franny and her family into food. Franny must find a way to stop the bots before they ta [...]

  • Veronica

    In this case Franny is to tired to do all the extra school activities. So, she decided to create three robots that are exactly like her. One to learn bagpipe, other to learn soccer and another to learn to cook. Everything goes well until she sees her mom getting to tired following the robots activities. They want to be excelent and for that they will destroy everyone in the world. Franny realizes that it wasn't a good idea to create the robots, so she tricks them until they all get destroyed. Th [...]

  • Katharine

    Perfect for my 7 year old who loves silliness and sci-fi. He was so excited to see I had a stack of Franny K. Stein's from the library today and enthusiastically snuggled to read it. I'm finding it can be a bit hard to find these early chapter books that are not all about "life in the second grade" (such as Judy Moody and Goony Bird). As homeschoolers, my kids don't really relate to that theme. So far, the Franny K Steins avoid too much "class" talk while also praising creativity. Love that.

  • Oliver

    She made three other Fran robots and like usual, her creations got her into trouble. They were just going too hard so she said, tomatoes row I'll make you a little calmer, but when she went to bed, they sneaked and made a plan. The Igor had to wake her up. The Fran had a great idea and made herself look exactly like the robots. She made them do amazing things, but then the last one figured out that Fran was destroying the other ones. Read it to see how it ends.

  • Renee

    Read aloud with my two boys - ages 5 and 7. Now that they are all into graphic novels, I have a hard time finding a chapter book read aloud that they will agree to read with me. This was the 7 year old's suggestion and they both loved the book. We will continue with the whole series! Yeah! I thought this would be a little two silly for me but I enjoyed it.

  • Little Miss and the Legomeister

    Little Miss's latest bedtime obsession. I must admit I like these a lot better for out loud bedtime stories than her previous book, Leven Thumps and the Whispered Secret. Cute if somewhat odd story.

  • CC

    Fran is a mad scientist but not what you would expect. Fran is a little girl with a big brain, with a big brain she uses it to make creations above and beyond and because of that everyone in her class is scared. Fran makes her mind change so she is like girl with so many different personalities. To find out how crazy this girl can be read the whole series.

  • Deirdre Keating

    My favorite of the Franny books so far. We've read at least four of them now. The later ones have a slight showing of some "attitude" but this one and the first, Lunch Walks Among Us, keep Aidan busy for days----creating similar inventions in his "lab" ;-)

  • StorySnoops

    This series continues to amuse and entertain, while teaching a valuable lesson each time as well. In The Fran with Four Brains, the lesson is about how exhausting and overwhelming it can be to be an overscheduled kid (click here for full review storysnoops/detailp)

  • Kat

    I liked the book because, I like the Franny K. Stein books.I liked how when Franny made three robots of herself everyone thought the robots were her. I didn't like how Franny's robots were planningto kill Franny and her family.

  • Kaethe

    I love Franny K. Stein. I love the little pink house and the bats outside her attic bedroom window. And I love how Franny's family and classmates are all somewhat puzzled, but totally accepting, of her weird ways.

  • Katrina

    Like all the books in this series, this is an amusing read. For some reason, Frannie K. Stein has always been a big hit with the boys in my classroom, particularly those who tend not to like reading.

  • Brooke

    Another favorite book of ours, we have been reading more kids books these days as I am constantly trying to cram reading into them. My daughter loved this one as well. She liked the idea in her and wanted to implement it in her own life.

  • Anica

    Juneau is getting too big for these books, but still loves them. She finished this one while I was shopping around for other books. But she made me buy it anyway. That's my girl.

  • Charank20

    really cute book, i only read it because my sister wanted to

  • Chris Hays

    Great sense of humor. The graphics add a lot of unwritten humor to the story.

  • Kat

    I liked the book because she wanted to make 3 robots so she can take a little brake, but insted ends up having to disable them so her mom will be able to relax for a little.

  • Trinity Klennert

    Jim Benton is an amazing author. I love these books. It was a quick easy read but, i want to be a scienctist when i grow up.

  • Tash

    It was cute. My little sister demanded that I read it to her, and I enjoyed it along with her. She loves these books.
