  • Praise for Crankenstein:

    "Expect many re-read requests from Crankensteins who may (or may not) recognize themselves."
    (Publishers Weekly).

  • "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).

  • "Whoa. Be prepared for the intense frustrations, the moody outbursts and the green scowls of Crankenstein...Each setting reveals sly comic elements that both kids and their grown-ups will appreciate. Readers will laugh out loud...Get ready to read this aloud a lot." 
    (Kirkus Reviews ).

  • "Sometimes-when you have to go to school, when you have to take cough syrup-all there is to say is "MEHHRRRR!"... This is a No, David! for slightly older kids..."
    (The Horn Book).
