Frankenstein: A Monstrous Parody

Frankenstein - Rick Walton, Nathan Hale

Written by: Rick Walton and Nathan Hale 


This is a comical spin off of the classic tale, "Madeline". Frankenstein is the scariest monster in Mrs. Devel's castle, frightening all the animals and parents he comes across. Until one night, he wakes up without a head and has to be taken to the hospital. When at the hospital, he gets screws put into the side of his head and all the other monsters in the castle want to visit him and be like him! 


I would say this book is for 2nd and 3rd graders! It is a fun book to read and many students will be able to see the similarities in the two stories. You could story map this book, helping students see the different characters, setting, beginning, middle, end, problem and solution of a text; or do a compare and contrast chart enabling students to spot the differences and similarities in two different stories!
