Franklin and the Big Small Case


Franklin the Turtle and his animal friends like to play detectives. They solve mysteries by searching for clues, so they call themselves the Super Cluepers. One day, when Franklin's younger sister, Harriet, can't find her stuffed animal Lilly Kitty anywhere, Franklin says, “This sounds like a job for the Super Cluepers!” He and his friends immediately transform into their super detective selves. Bear becomes Mega Bear, stronger than anybody; Beaver turns into Book Whiz, the smartest of the smarts; and Fox changes into Kid Gizmo, the greatest gadget guy in the world. Luckily, each one of the Super Cluepers has a special and different skill, so they make an awesome team when they all work together. And that's just what it will take to solve this tough case!

Based on the 3D-animated television series Franklin and Friends, the popular Franklin and Friends book series is known for relatable stories that offer useful advice for young children on navigating their social lives. In this story, the friends model the diverse ways every child can be a superhero with his or her own unique superpower, helping to promote self-esteem. This book would work beautifully for character education lessons on perseverance, cooperation and teamwork. With the group's meticulous process of looking for clues and deciphering what they mean, it also offers a terrific example of how much fun it can be to figure things out. It's likely to inspire some readers to create their own detective teams.
