"I really loved this book, it was great for young children beggining to read! I've read every book by these artists before amd have loved all of them! Abunch of adolescent chidren going on many interesting adventures is wonderful" ~Reviewed on Amazon

"I've seen the movie and the many spoofs so I thought I knew the plot, but when I finally sat down to read the Mary Shelley classic, I was taken back by the intellectual undertones and concept by which the plot of the book plays out. Yes there is a scientist who creates a being and brings it to life. And yes there is a central "monster" that creates havoc. However, it is more than just a scary story. The commentary on the potential risks to society caused by technology can be taken into account today. You also learn that the "monster" is not some mindless being, but there is a back story. I'm only disappointed in the fact that it took me so long to pick up this book to read"~Reviewed on Amazon
