Praise for Frankenstein's Fright Before Christmas

“This pint-sized Frankenstein's monster, last seen in the Madeline spoof Frankenstein: A Monstrous Parody, returns this time to riff on 'Twas the Night before Christmas.'” —The Horn Book

“Frankenstein and his little monster friend are taking on Christmas in this follow-up to the Madeline-inspired Frankenstein: A Monstrous Parody . . . illustrations in greens and red are a perfect match for this monstrously fun Christmas offering.” —School Library Journal

“A comic tale combining elements of the Frankenstein story, 'The Night Before Christmas' and the classic Madeline . . . Frightfully funny.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The book's wicked sense of humor will have mischievous readers cackling--Hale even manages to use the red-and-green Christmas palette to cadaverous effect.” —Publishers Weekly
