Frankenstein (adapted by C. Louise March, illustrated by Bob Berry, 2004)


C. Louise March’s 2004 young reader adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein invites a wider demographic to engage in the world of Victor Frankenstein through a simplified story and dramatic illustrations. The edition’s 64 upside-down pages, while assumed to be a misprint, can be interpreted as representative of how Victor’s life was in disarray after the creation of the monster.
