Book Review by Bob Walch

What happens when an ordinary kid wakes up on the wrong side of the bed and begins the day in a grumpy mood? CRANKENSTEIN! Yup, that’s what you are dealing with as you’ll see when you read this picture book.

As the child a simple question like, “How are you?” or “Who wants pancakes?” and what will he reply? “MEHHRRRR!!” And, unfortunately, the day doesn’t get any better for Crankenstein. He remains cranky at school, after school, all through dinner and when you get to bedtime…well, let’s not even talk about that!

About the only thing that can improve Crankenstein’s lousy disposition is when he encounters… No, I’m not going to tell you. You’ll have to read this story to see what finally puts a smile on Crankenstein’s sour face!

Everyone can have a monstrous day and when that happens no one wants to be around the person. With its big bold illustrations and humorous narrative, this book addresses the problem and shows how sometimes the situation can be reversed.
