  • The Call to Adventure
  • Hey look. That spiderweb says "some pig" just like Charlottes Web. I better look for more.
  • The Departure in the Hero's Journey in the book Fleabrain Loves Franny by Joanne Rocklin retold by Asma Bushara
  • The Call to Adventure
  • This can't be right. A talking, writing, reading flea who wants to meet me?
  • Franny just got home from the hospital because she was diagnosed with polio disease. Due to polio she is unable to walk and has to get around in a wheelchair.
  • The Refusal of the Call
  • All of her family members, including her dog, go inside. While she's outside she finds a spiderweb that says "some pig." This phrase is from the book Charlotte's Web which is Franny's favorite book. From then on she starts looking for secret notes in webs.
  • The Beginning of the Adventure
  • Franny still continued her search for spiderwebs. She came across a very peculiar one. This spiderweb had a secret message talking about how a flea who lived on her dogs tail would really like to meet her.
  • Later that night Franny was having dinner with her family. She realized she hadn't told any of them about what she was experiencing. She was very nervous and felt as though Fleabrain was just part of her imagination. She decided to keep it to herself.
  • Franny takes that big leap and finally decides to meet Fleabrain. She's really nervous about it, but she realizes that it was the right decision. She uses a magnifying glass so she can see him.
