Synopsis

Crankenstein by Samantha Berger

He may look like any ordinary, but when faced with a rainy day, a melting popsicle, or an early bedtime, one little boy transforms into a mumbling, grumbling Crankenstein! When Crankenstein meets his match in a fellow Crankenstein, the results could be catastrophic - or they could be just what he needs to brighten his day!

Reviews

Will the creature ever turn from MEHHRRRR! to merry? Youngsters will roar along with Crankenstein through this silly and sympathetic story of grumpy-grouchies.

Whoa. Be prepared for the intense frustrations, the moody outbursts and the green scowls of Crankenstein...Each setting reveals sly comic elements that both kids and their grown-ups will appreciate. Readers will laugh out loud...Get ready to read this aloud a lot.

Sometimes-when you have to go to school, when you have to take cough syrup-all there is to say is MEHHRRRR!.. . This is a No, David! for slightly older kids...

Praise for Crankenstein

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
