Frankenstein: A Monstrous Parody by Ludworst Bemonster

My thoughts: I loved Madeleine as a child. It was so French and tragic.

Well, along the same lines, little Frankenstein wakes up in the night and is found because something is not right. It is a little boy's dream book and a little girl's nightmare. Unsettling as it may seem to a mother or girlie stomach, my little boy loved it. We read it together, taking turns reading a page at a time. I enjoyed the parody. He has never read Madeleine which is tragic.

Although perfect for Halloween, I would add this to any little boy's library. It is complement to the prim and proper Madeleine that needed to be written years ago.

**Ludworst Bemonster is a pen name. The actual author's name is Nathan Hale. I don't know him, but he is apparently living nearby. Maybe I will stalk him. And walk like a zombie while doing so.

Because I'm weird like that.

*I received a free copy of this book from publishing company in exchange for an honest review. The opinions expressed here are my own.
