What Kind of Book is Frankenstein

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Readerly Mom
Bay Area mother of two, world traveler, book lover, picky reader
6.0 / 7.0

I think this might be the chef d’oeuvre of the whole BabyLit series. As a fan of Mary Shelley’s original novel, I think this take on it is clever and hilarious. To my kids, it’s a cute book about body parts, made extra fun by featuring a funny-looking monster. It’s a win all around!

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
6.0 / 7.0

What could be cuter than a Frankenstein anatomy primer? Pretty much nothing. The illustrations for BabyLit books are all adorable, but I particularly enjoy them when whatever they’re “priming” is some way related to the content of the book itself!

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
6.0 / 7.0
