Frankenstein Takes the Cake

By: Adam Rex

Frankenstein is getting married! Too bad his mother-in-law doesn't approve of the nuptials: "I'm an open-minded person. I'm not trying to be mean, but I never thought my little girl would marry someone green." Frankenstein's not the only one with troubles. In this collection of poems and vignettes, the Headless Horseman is finding it problematic to have a pumpkin for a head (and he's blogging about it). Edgar Allan Poe has writer's block and can't figure out what word to rhyme with "rose." And why has tourism dropped off at Skull Island? Full-color illustrations.
