It’s autumn in Green Mountain Town and the children are afraid to go outside and play. Last year on Halloween, Frankenstein showed up in town and frightened everyone away from their trick-and-treats. This year, the kids insist they will just stay home and say NO to candy. Except Suzy. Suzy likes candy too much to not go trick-or-treating, so she hatches a plan with her cousin Victor to save the fall season and Halloween.
Finding Frankenstein provides a number of “teachable moments” on the topics of bullying, fear, leadership and courage. In addition, the book incorporates a history of Halloween and trick-or-treating, and the unmasking of the “real” Frankenstein.
Finding Frankenstein is the second book in Liz Bockelman’s American Holiday Series. Liz tells stories that illustrate faith, morals, and ethics through plot, character, setting, and conflict development.
