Synopsis

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!
