Frankenstein Takes the Cake by Adam Rex


Rex, Adam Frankenstein Takes the Cake, Harcourt, 2008. PICTURE BOOK. Language - G, Sexual Content - G; Violence - G/PG; In this book of ghastly poetry, Frankenstein and his bride are preparing for their wedding while the rest of the monsters battle contend with various troubles: the Headless Horseman has a blog detailing his dismay at people wanting to eat his head instead of finding it scary, Dracula Jr., who is only 92 years old, decides he wants a "big-boy" bed, and much more! Frankenstein Takes the Cake is the second wonderful monster poetry book by Adam Rex, and I liked this one just as much as the first. The illustrations and the verse are monstrously entertaining! EL-ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: Kami, Children's Librarian
