Oh, how wonderful that Franny K. Stein is not your average third grade girl! She likes her bedroom dark and spooky, and she fills it with bats and a snake house and test tubes! This kid is quite the individual, but, at school, it's hard for Franny to make friends. She's just so different, and the other kids aren't quite sure what to make of her. Her teacher talks to her and has complete confidence that being such a smart young lady, Franny will be able to figure out how to make friends by thinking of this as an 'experiment.' Maybe if her doll doesn't ooze guck the other girls will like her more?
So, Franny takes a look at the other kids and for a short while, she tries to blend in ... that is until someone puts unstable industrial waste into the trashcan and a crab pumpkin monster kidnaps the teacher. Everyone is scared and no one knows what to do.
Well, everyone except one person. This is a situation that needs a mad scientist and Franny K. Stein can be herself and save the day.
