The Secret Journal of Victor Frankenstein On the Workings of the Human Body by David Stewart

This book explores the workings of the human body through the long-lost journal of Victor Frankenstein, literature's most infamous 'mad scientist'. This book takes an in-depth look at how the body works through the unique angle of a familiar fictional character, bringing human biology to life with a dramatic narrative and high-quality illustrations. It includes fold-out fictional newspaper pages and letters, and a simple retelling of Mary Shelley's classic Frankenstein that runs alongside the main text. Quotes from Mary Shelley's classic accompany the main text, combining scientific learning with classic literature to appeal to children both in the classroom and at home.
