Martha Speaks (book)
|Publisher||Houghton Mifflin Harcourt|
|Followed by||Martha and Skits|
Martha Speaks is an illustrated children's story written by Susan Meddaugh. It is the first in a series of six books featuring the title character Martha.
The book features a ten-year-old girl named Helen Finney, who fed her golden retriever dog Martha some alphabet soup and something very mysterious occurred. The soup went to Martha's brain, instead of her stomach. When the letters got into her throat, they lost their way, so they traveled to her brain instead. This gave Martha the ability to speak.
