Frankenstein Makes A Sandwich
By: Adam Rex
A humorous look at monsters galore, with a little something for everyone, written in verse. I read the second book first, Frankenstein Takes the Cake, and upon finding out there was another, opted to read this one as well. With hidden gems, lines and prose tucked into virtually every corner, including the Library of Congress information page (The Invisible Man’s snow-angel), this book is a treasure trove just waiting to be explored, poked, and laughed at. Some of the jokes are definitely aimed at an older crowd, but that just enforces the fact that this book is for all ages – ideally to be read aloud as a family.
I can only hope that Mr. Rex will continue to delight us with further displays of monster atrocities in verse. This was beautiful (and beautifully illustrated throughout).
