The Lovereading4Kids comment

Young Reading: Series Three. Based on the classic tale by Mary Shelley, this gripping horror story recounts Victor Frankenstein’s terrible experiment to "build" a human without a soul. Titles in this 7th and final Level in the Usborne Reading Programme are for fully confident readers who still need to gain the stamina needed for standard length books. At 64 pages in length and up to 5000 words they use advanced sentence structure and vocabulary, and have more complex plots with subplots. Subjects include historical events, biographies and simplified versions of classic novels.

Synopsis

Frankenstein by Rosie Dickins

Intended for children whose reading ability and confidence allows them to tackle longer and more complex stories.

Victor Frankenstein dreams of creating life. As lightning flashes across the sky, his creature stirs. Will it be the perfect being he imagines, or a monster?
