A diet of alphabet soup turns Helen's dog, Martha, into a veritable chatterbox. At first Helen and her family find it both fascinating and fun to have a talking dog as they show off Martha's talents to their friends and relations. Soon she's driving everyone crazy with her chatter, until she takes her family's shouted command to 'Shut up' to heart and things get back to normal. But there are occasions when it's good to talk, especially on the telephone, as the family and a burglar discover. Lots to read and laugh over here and readers may well be inspired to invent their own episodes involving Martha and her linguistic prowess.
