With just the right amount of scary for spooky little readers, children can delight in the fascinating horror story of Victor Frankenstein.
On a stormy summer evening two centuries ago, Mary Shelley wrote the classic tale about a scientist and his monstrous creation. After Victor Frankenstein discovers the secret to life and uses it to build an eight-foot-tall monster, he realizes he's made a creature that he can't take care of - or control!
