Synopsis

Quackenstein Hatches a Family by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen, Brian Thomas Jones

Inspired by the dark and stormy night of classic Frankenstein stories, this picture book is a funny tale of a lonely duck and his unexpected new companion Told in rollicking rhyme, Quackenstein Hatches a Family introduces Quack, a lonely duck in his lair at the zoo. One day Quack takes an egg home with him, and much like his inspiration, Dr. Frankenstein, he is shocked by what emerges from the egg. The monster chases him throughout the zoo in a fast-paced and funny parody of monster movies. In the twist ending, the monster (actually an adorable platypus) and Quack resolve their differences and settle down to keep each other company.
