What if your dog could talk? Follow the adventures of Martha after alphabet soup gives her the power of speech. She gets jobs, foils bad guys, wins contests, and orders lots of steak! Based on the best selling books by Susan Meddaugh, Martha Speaks comes from the creators of Curious George and Arthur and is designed to bridge vocabulary gaps common to many young children.
