Product description

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!

Review quote

Praise for the bestselling "Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich: " With irreverent entries such as "Count Dracula Doesn t Know He s Been Walking Around All Night with Spinach in His Teeth," this mash of monster poems will send kids howling (with laughter). "Family Fun "(star) Readers will relish every gross and hilarious entry in this monstrous menu of misadventures... Here s a read-aloud candidate sure to elicit loud screamsbut not of fright. "Kirkus Reviews"(starred)(star) The book is fresh, creative, and funny, with just enough gory detail to cause a few gasps. Kids will eat it up. "School Library Journal "(starred)(star) Rex gives readers the pleasure of discovering punch lines on their own, and his droll, ultra-detailed paintings show he takes comedy seriously. "Publishers Weekly" (starred)"
