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 ›
Highly recommend for children and adults who love silliness (and in 1 case - scatological humor).
Do you want to read about monsters?
Do you want an earworm that includes some of the most annoying songs currently on the planet?
Run — don't walk — to your library or bookstore and pick up the ever-delightful Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich.
Now, this isn't a book for ordinary folks. No, you need to have nerves of steel. You will meet the most fearsome monsters on its pages: Phantom of the Opera, werewolves, vampires, mummies, the Hunchback of Notre Dame... diabolical creatures, one and all.
In the hands of Adam Rex, we see them as they truly are. Rex asks important questions: what does the Phantom hear in his head? What does the Hunchback take to work for lunch? What makes Frankenstein go into the village?
That prompts a perfectly reasonable question of our own, readers: why would a presumably sane man create such a haunting book.
Are you still here? Are you not quivering behind your chair in fear? Are you not racing off to pick up this book?
If not: what in heaven's name is wrong with you? I ordered my personal copy within minutes of finishing the first book. I shall raid the change jar once it's filled again to purchase the sequel, Frankenstein Takes the Cake (unless someone purchases it for me, hint hint).
I enjoyed this book immensely and was inspired to try my hand at horror writing. More on that endeavor as it develops. In the meantime, read this and weep — with laughter.
