A Valentine for Frankenstein

By Leslie Kimmelman
Illustrated by Timothy Banks

A goofy look at how some familiar monsters celebrate Valentine's Day.

Frankenstein isn't like any of the other monsters at the Valentine's Day ball. He doesn't like gross things and he's far too polite. But one monster likes that Frankenstein is different. She sends him a secret valentine, leading Frankenstein and the reader on a hilariously disgusting journey to finding her! In the end, all the monsters come to accept Frankenstein for the monster he is. Readers of all ages will easily identify with the delightful cast of people, monsters, and animals featured in these charming stories. Just right for read-aloud, new readers, and reluctant readers.

  • Story about Valentine's day with the monsters of Halloween
  • Message about accepting differences
  • "Where's Wally" approach to art, where readers try to find Frankenstein's secret valentine
