In order to find her place in the river, Franny the flannelmouth sucker fish adventures throughout the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon, learning how to survive in such a dynamic and exciting landscape. Along her journey, Franny learns how to swim over rapids, evade predators, and catch food from other organisms she meets.
