Frankenstein Takes the Cake (Paperback)
No one ever said it was easy being a monster. Take Frankenstein, for instance: He just wants to marry his undead bride in peace, but his best man, Dracula, is freaking out about the garlic bread. Then there’s the Headless Horseman, who wishes everyone would stop drooling over his delicious pumpkin head. And can someone please tell Edgar Allan Poe to get the door already before the raven completely loses it? Sheesh.
In a wickedly funny follow-up to the bestselling Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich, Adam Rex once again proves that monsters are just like you and me. (Well, sort of.)

Here’s a read-aloud candidate sure to elicit loud screams—but not of fright.” —Kirkus Reviews(starred) (star) “The book is fresh, creative, and funny, with just enough gory detail to cause a few gasps. Kids will eat it up.” —School Library Journal (starred) (star) “Rex gives readers the pleasure of discovering punch lines on their own, and his droll, ultra-detailed paintings show he takes comedy seriously.” — Publishers Weekly (starred) —
