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

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... --The Horn Book 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. --Kirkus 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. --School Library Journal Praise for Crankenstein

Expect many re-read requests from Crankensteins who may (or may not) recognize themselves.
