Frankenstein (Chris Mould edition)

Overview


This is the story of young Victor Frankenstein who longed to seek out the answers to life and death. Day and night he worked to make a creature, to give it life, to create something that the world had never seen. But he did not know that one day his efforts would destroy him and everything he had. Mould's unique style brings Mary Shelley's classic story dramatically to life from the sweeping ice-scapes of the Arctic to the creation of the monster.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A new retelling of the story in attractively cartoony pictures... There is a spirit of cheery, Halloweenish fun to the drawings, dominated by autumnal orange or a deep, macabre green... Mould's chipper retelling achieves some of the pathos of the novel's final pages... His final picture is haunting,...an image to send chills of terror and pity up the spine of any kid, no matter how old he is."--The New York Times Book Review

"Younger readers--and all ages--are sure to go for [this] recent picture book version of Frankenstein... Chris Mould does a great job retelling the famous horror tale in short form. Mould's cartoonlike illustrations give some comic relief, but in terrific artistic detail still capture the spirit of doom and gloom."--Atlanta Journal Constitution

"The words are powerful: Mould's retelling manages to simplify the Victorian prose without losing all the terror and melancholy of the monster story."--Booklist

"A cartoon format makes a classic novel accessible to younger readers."--Publishers Weekly

"A clever adaptation... This story theme presents a classic case of an abused and neglected child growing up to become an abuser himself. It clearly relates how important nurturing and love are in a child's life. This adaptation can stand on its own."--Book Report

James Hynes
. . .[T]he novel Frankenstein is quite a read. . . .It's highly Romantic, in the literary sense. . .[there is] a good deal of attractive torment and self-doubt, from both Victor Frankenstein and his creation. . . .If ever a book needed to be placed in context, it's Frankenstein. --The New York Times Book Review

Read an Excerpt

"It was on a dreary night of November, that I beheld the accomplishment of my toils. With an anxiety that almost amounted to agony, I collected the instruments of life around me, that I might infuse a spark of being into the lifeless thing that lay at my feet. It was already one in the morning; the rain pattered dismally against the panes, and my candle was nearly burnt out, when, by the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open; it breathed hard, and a convulsive motion agitated its limbs." -- From Frankenstein
