Praise for Frankenstein

“Walton twists the classic rhymes of the original with glee (“In two crooked lines, they bonked their heads / pulled out their teeth / and wet their beds”) while Hale reenacts each scene with devilish mayhem.”--Booklist

"The illustrations have traded sunny yellow for pumpkin orange backgrounds and make comically sly allusions to the original title.”--Kirkus

"Fans of the original...will enjoy spotting the parallels in this creepy-cute Halloween substitute."--Publishers Weekly
 
"...children...will gobble this one up..."--School Library Journal
