A Bargain for Frances
Frances and Thelma are friends -- most of the time
Thelma always seems to get Frances into trouble. When she tricks Frances into buying her tea set, it's the last straw. Can Frances show her that it's better to lose a bargain than lose a friend?

"A Bargain for Frances" by Russell Hoban, is a book I read when I was younger along with Nicobobinus, and others, The Great Brain Series, and Susan Cooper's The Dark Is Rising. I love how Frances just wants to be friends with Thelma, but Thelma doesn't see it. Frances likes to have tea parties and so does Thelma, so when they are both talking about the new tea set at the store, they both make a deal. No backsies!
