The adventure of Serafina and the Black Cloak meets the clever mysteries of Greenglass House in this middle grade twist on Frankenstein, complete with a precocious main character bound to steal your heart.
What would you do if you accidentally brought a monster to life and set him loose on your town? Frances Stenzel, aspiring scientist and inventor, has done just that.She was trying to prove her scientific worth to her parents so they would take her with them to their scientific symposiums for once—instead, she reawakened her great-grandfather’s secret and most terrible invention.Before it can destroy the town, she sets off after it, with her pet chimp and sarcastic robot tutor by her side. Monster-hunting isn’t easy and along the way she’ll face a persistent constable, angry locals, and an unexpected friendship all while the trail for the monster goes cold and time is running out before her science career, and the city itself, are doomed forever.Full of thrills and heart alike, Frances and the Monster takes readers through winding streets and over perilous rooftops, with wily monsters, unpredictable twists, and powerful friendships waiting along the way.
