He may look like any ordinary boy, but when faced with a rainy day, a melting popsicle, or an early bedtime, one little boy transforms into a mumbling, grumbling Crankenstein! When Crankenstein meets his match in a fellow Crankenstein, the results could be catastrophic-or they could be just what he needs to brighten his day!
As evidenced by the success of books like Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site, the popularity ofthematic mash-ups in picture books is on the rise. Crankenstein's combination of emotion and monster themes has certain kid and parent-appeal and plenty of promotional opportunities, come Halloween and throughout the year.
Praise for Crankenstein:
"Expect many re-read requests from Crankensteins who may (or may not) recognize themselves."
"Will the creature ever turn from "MEHHRRRR!" to merry? Youngsters will roar along with Crankenstein through this silly and sympathetic story of grumpy-grouchies."
—School Library Journal
