Franklin the turtle and all of his friends are playing spaceship in their tree fort. Well, almost all of his friends. Where''s Snail? He''s down on the ground, playing his harmonica. ?Our spaceship is about to take off. Climb aboard!? Franklin tells Snail. But Snail doesn''t want to play spaceship, he wants to play his harmonica. ?You can do that later,? Franklin answers him, and so Snail agrees to join his friends. But even after blasting off into space, dodging meteors and landing on Planet Glorp, Snail isn''t having any fun in the spaceship. He would still rather play his harmonica. Can Franklin and Snail find a way to play together so that everyone has fun?

Often, young children are confronted with disagreements over choosing a game to play, which can lead to a child being left out of playtime. Here, as in all the Franklin books, the characters find a solution, and all the friends are able to contribute to the game, making them each feel like a part of the group. This title would stir lively discussions among youngsters as a tie-in to character education lessons on adaptability, fairness or inclusiveness. Based on the beloved 3D-animated television series Franklin and Friends, it would be a popular read-aloud choice for preschool or kindergarten storytime
