Description

With a glow-in-the-dark cover and zany art, this is a book about "garbage" that transforms and mutates into a grotesque, greedy monster devouring everything in its path, Frankenstink is sure to be a hit with kids who do not like to clean up. Is the monster who feeds on "a mountainous salad of plastic and goo, fast-food leftovers and Styrofoam stew," real, a dream, or a warning of what is to come if we don't compost and recycle? Complemented by playful illustrations in a comic-book style.

Completely GROSS!!! Boys will love it! I might be able to use this book to convince my kids to clean! I absolutely loved it with its rhyming bouncing rhythm.

Cute book, a little long but anytime you have rhymes with beautiful illustrations, it's a winner to me. Of course, monsters and "stinky" will be very attractive to children

Calling all Captain Underpants and No, David! fans; this is your kind of book! It has all the elements to make it a hit with kids easily entertained by smelly, slimy, yucky, and icky; namely every 1st through 4th grade boy in the U.S. Rhyming text reminiscent of Dr. Suess and illustrations, especially of the Frankenstink monster at its peak, are sure to please.

If I were to rank modern children's books from dreadfully dreadful to daddy-would-read-it-alone, this one lands at the very top of the ones I would read to myself. I have 3 children 8 and under and each and every one of them was rolling around laughing and crying out "yuck" and "ew". These are signs of a great children's book.

I loved the originality of the story and the fact that it was long enough to not be a waste of time but short enough that daddy could get back to watching Comic Book Men on the DVR after my long shift at work. This book is one that I plan to add to our shelf at home since the copy I currently have is an ebook copy provided to me for free by Netgalley in exchange for a review. This is one of those instances where I am gloriously happy to give a children's book my thumbs up and huge stamp of approval!

Frankenstink is a must-have for your children! It teaches the importance of keeping your room clean while making it sound fun (or scary not to)!
