"Franklin's Rival"

Franklin is over at his Granny's house for a visit. Granny says she has a surprise for him and Franklin thinks it's chocolate-chip cookies. Actually, it's Possum. She babysits him sometimes and today she invited him over to her house. Franklin recognizes Possum. She has pictures of him on her mantel. Granny explains that she used to babysit Possum's Mom. She wants Franklin to get to know Possum and has them come outside for a picnic. Franklin is looking to his favorite sandwich, but when he bites into his sandwich, it's not peanut butter and lettuce, it's watercress. That's Possum's favorite kind of sandwich. They go into town and everybody recognizes Possum. Granny's told them so much about him and how he sends her letters. Franklin asks if he can send Granny a letter. Then, later, Franklin wants to play checkers with Granny. But you can't play checkers with three people. So they play cribbage, which Possum is especially good at, instead. From there, the two start competing for Granny's attention, helping her out with stuff and picking all of the flowers in her garden when she asks for some flowers. Finally, the two actually talk with each other. Possum thinks that it must be neat for Franklin who have a Granny who lives so close to him. His Granny lives so far away, he has to take an airplane to see her. Also, whenever Granny comes to babysit him, she brags about Franklin all the time. Franklin's surprised to learn that Granny brags about him. He decides that he can share Possum with Granny and they can both be her favorite "grandturtle."

"Franklin and the Trading Cards"

Franklin, Beaver and Fox are all trying to complete a set of trading cards. They're getting annoyed because there's just this one card that they can never find. Then, Franklin finds two of the same card that they don't have in his pack! That makes one for him and one for... Beaver or Fox? Both of them want it, but Franklin doesn't know who to give it to. He says he'll have to think on it. The two immediately begin vying to get the card from Franklin. Fox comes all the way to his house to help him out. On the bus, Beaver saves a seat for him. Plus, both of them give him food and other assorted bribes. Throughout the school day, the two are always write behind him, ready to help him out with something, like when he knocks something over, or breaks his pencil. At recess that day, he's trying to play with Snail, when Beaver and Fox each separately try to get him to play a game with them. Snail's not really sure what to make of all this and wonders who Franklin will give the card too. On the bus that day, Fox and Beaver both try to find Franklin and save a seat for him. But when they see that he's not sitting by Snail and ask Snail where he is, Snail tells them that he thinks Franklin is walking home today. After they leave, Franklin comes out. Snail was covering for him! Franklin and Snail go back to the store that's selling the trading cards. Franklin thinks maybe he'll get lucky and get that card again. Instead, he just ends up with eight of the same card. Later, he tells Snail that he's come up with the perfect solution and that he's going to have Beaver and Fox meet him at the playground tomorrow morning. Snail, thinking Franklin is going to have them race or something, announces "let the games begin!" The next morning, when Fox shows up, Franklin simply gives the card to him. Then, Beaver comes and Fox wonders what Franklin is going to tell her. He's surprised when Franklin walks over to Beaver and hands her the card - the one that would have completed his set! Feeling guilty, the two both try to give Franklin back his card. But Franklin says that they've both given him stuff, so he feels that they're even. Then, Goose comes. She shows them her card collection: she has 26 of a particular card. She's trying to collect as many of the same one as possible. Fox and Beaver are surprised by this: they never thought of collecting cards that way. Then, Franklin tells Goose it's her lucky day: the eight of the same card he got the day before just so happen to be the card she's collecting. She offers him three cards in exchange. Fox, Beaver and Franklin are dumbfounded: the card she's offering is the card they've all been chasing after. What are the odds of that? Goose wonders what's going on.moreless
