Victor Frankenstein, a gifted medical student, has discovered the secret of bringing dead matter to life. Gathering materials from graveyards and slaughterhouses, he creates a giant of superhuman strength. But he is horrified by what he has done, and runs away. How will the creature react to being left alone in the world by his creator? Specially commissioned full-color artwork brings excitement and atmosphere to this classic tale. Speech bubbles work with the main text to emphasize and enhance the retelling. Informative, fascinating end matter includes a biography of the author, Mary Shelley, and a history of adaptations of the classic novel in different mediums.
