One dark and stormy night at his house by the lake, they huddle around the fire, telling ghost stories. But Mary can imagine better than those! After learning about electricity that can make dead frogs twitch, she has a nightmare that triggers the birth of one of the greatest scary stories of all time: Frankenstein...
The inspirational story of the great writer Mary Shelley, brought to life by multi-award winning author Linda Bailey and with stunning illustrations from Júlia Sardà.
