Garlic and crosses are useless against Adam. Sunlight has been shown to be at least moderately effective. A silver bullet does the trick. Pretty much any bullet, really.

Monsters. It's hard not to love `em. Especially classic movie monsters. Now what we have here are all the monsters you could think of put in a variety of humorous and peculiar situations. There's "Count Dracula: Doesn't Know He's Been Walking Around All Night With Spinach In His Teeth". Or howzabout, "The Mummy: Won't Go To His Eternal Rest Without a Story and Some Cookies"? They're all here, illustrated in a vast variety of ways by the ultra-talented Adam Rex. Each poem is a scintillating series of new ideas involving all sorts of critters. Hidden in the pictures as well are limericks from the fictional, "Michelle & VonFuzz Limerical Guide To Monsters". Kids will lap up the goofy pictures and creatures.Read more ›
And be sure to by an extra for your kids! I don't have children and I will be buying several copies for other adults who don't have kids. This book is BRILLIANT and BEAUTIFUL and FUNNY! You can read it OVER and OVER again and I can't get over the AWESOME illustrations. This man is a Genius and I will now have to own every thing he comes out with.
Horror's classic characters who have tales inside include Griffin from H.G. Well's story The Invisible Man. Frankenstein's monster from Mary Shelley's classic tale. The Creature of the Black Lagoon, Phantom of the Opera (he must have been the author's favourite as he has a few stories within), Witches, Wolfman (well his best friend's letter to him anyway), Count Dracula, The Mummy, Yeti, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Dr Jekyll, Zombies, Bigfoot, Godzilla and the most terrifying monster of all - the Dentist!
This is a very entertaining and funny book. The illustrations mean it will appeal to children as well as adults.
There's a sequel to this as well Frankenstein Takes the Cake.
