Synopsis:
Young Frankie Stein is starting to doubt his father's claim that "Boys live in castles and monsters live in cities." Taking a leap of faith, Frankie heads into nearby Transylvania, Pennsylvania, to test that theory for himself - on October 31st! What's a monster-boy to do in a city overflowing with monsters?

Overall Thoughts:
Whether you are a fan of Frankenstein’s monster or introducing your little boil or ghoul to the world of monsters, this tale is a great start to kick off a love of things that go bump in the night. Frankie is not just a Halloween treat, but something that you can read all year round. Not too didactic or overly written, Steven Seagle gives us a fun ride within the books quick 48 pages. Visually, Frankie Stein is perfect eye candy. With illustrations by Sponge Bob artist Marco Cinello, every page is a wonderful whimsical delight.
