Franny is a little girl with a mad scientist lab in her bedroom and a dog/lab assistant named Igor. Franny's science experiments and inventions regularly get Franny into some sort of trouble. In The Frandidate, Franny decides to run for class president. To appeal to her classmates she invents the "Frandidate", a skin that Franny wears that can alter its appearance to appeal to whomever is looking at it. But the Frandidate wants to be more than just class president. While this is a chapter book, the story relies heavily on Benton's illustrations to bring the bizarre world that Franny creates to life. Because this book has a good mix of illustrations and engaging text, it would be a great choice for reluctant readers. This is also one of the few books that boys will really enjoy where the central character is a girl.
