Martha Speaks is a children's picture book written and illustrated by Susan Meddaugh, published by Houghton Mifflin in 1992. It is the first in a series of six books featuring a girl's pet dog named Martha.
The book features a ten-year-old girl named Helen Finney, who fed her Golden Retriever dog Martha some alphabet soup and something very mysterious occurred. The soup went to Martha's brain, instead of her stomach. When the letters got into her throat, they lost their way, so they traveled to her brain instead. This gave Martha the ability to speak.
