Frankenstein Takes the Cake by Adam Rex


Frankenstein Takes the Cake by Adam Rex

Jam-packed with sight gags, sly jokes, ghoulish cartoons, and spoofing, Frankenstein Takes the Cake is a great way to celebrate Halloween and trick kids into reading poetry. Dubbed a fiendishly funny picture book by Family Fun magazine, this follow-up to the bestselling Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich , finds Frankenstein about to marry his undead bride. But first, he has to meet his future in-laws, and stop his best man, Dracula, from freaking out about the garlic bread. No one ever said it was easy being a monster!


Praise for the bestselling Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich:

this mash of monster poems will send kids howling (with laughter). -- Family Fun

(starred) (star) Rex gives readers the pleasure of discovering punch lines on their own, and his droll, ultra-detailed paintings show he takes comedy seriously. -- Publishers Weekly (starred)
