Monster Madness

Age Level: 7-9  Grade Level: PreK–1

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is one of the most enduring classics in history and the world’s first science fiction novel. More than 200 years after its publication, Frankenstein is firmly entrenched in pop culture—but how much of what we know actually comes from the book? This volume’s engaging main text discusses the history of Frankenstein and the ways the story and the monster’s image have changed over the years. Informative fact boxes and full-color photographs bring the legend to life, and a detailed graphic organizer outlines the differences between the novel and the 1931 movie that launched a pop culture icon.
