New First Book Marketplace Title!

Ever wonder what your dog would say to you if it could speak? (Some possible ideas: “Must you always speak in baby-talk to me? That’s insulting.” and “Under no circumstances should I be forced to wear a cardigan.”) Well now you can check out what’s on chatty Martha’s mind with the arrival of Martha Speaks by Susan Meddaugh now available at the First Book Marketplace!

A New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Book of the Year and Parent’s Choice Award Winner, Martha Speaks chronicles the shenanigans of Martha, who is fed alphabet soup by her young owner and POOF! is able to speak. The vibrant illustrations capture Martha ordering pizza and surprising unsuspecting people with her wit, charm, and oh, her ability to talk.

Its author and illustrator, Susan Meddaugh, lives in Massachusetts with her family — including her dogs of course. Martha was a real dog who lived with Susan and her family. One day, when Susan’s son was eating alphabet soup, he wondered what would happen if he fed the soup to Martha. The rest, is history, and by history I mean an award-winning 6-book series about Martha and a popular PBS Kids show.

We all know the book is better than the movie/nationally syndicated public television children series….so pick up your copy today!
