Frankenstein: A Monstrous Parody by Ludworst Bemonster
There's been a host of children's book parodies in the past few years, but Frankenstein is sure to make you laugh. A play on Madeline, Rick Walton has mirrored the form of both text and story while illustrator Nathan Hale captures the feel of Bemelman's classic illustrations, even limiting the palette of some illustrations to black, white, and Halloween orange. Frankenstein is for kids or adults, but especially those for whom Madeline is a favorite.Try pairing it with the classic for a kooky Halloween story time.
