Movie Monsters from Godzilla to Frankenstein (Monster Mania Series) by Krystyna Goddu –OPTIONAL

Goddu, Krystyna Movie Monsters from Godzilla to Frankenstein (Monster Mania Series)   NON-FICTION.  Lerner, 2017.  $24.99.  Content: G.
This book features information about monsters that have been in movies, starting with Frankenstein and moving forward into today's popular culture. It delves into the dual nature of these often misunderstood creatures. It features bright and varied imagery, such as movie stills, photographs, and illustrations.
This book is much better than the other I read from this series. It’s well organized and interesting. My only complaint is that there is a section about whether Frankenstein could be reality, the author writes about prosthetics and completely ignores transplants, which better resembles the topic. I don’t usually get requests for books about movie monsters, but I think it could work for those that just want a monster book, which is usually readers too young for this book.

That's weirs that the books are in the same series and yet organized so differently. You should really be able o expect a uniformity of organization within a series.

I agree! It was very strange.
