Description


The perfect cure for a cranky kid, illustrated by the #1 New York Times bestselling and Caldecott-winning artist, Dan Santat.

BEWARE OF CRANKENSTEIN! He's a little monster of crankiness that no one can destroy! MEHHRRRR!!! He may look like any ordinary boy, but when faced with a rainy day, a melting popsicle, or an early bedtime, one little boy transforms into a mumbling, grumbling Crankenstein. When Crankenstein meets his match in a fellow Crankenstein, the results could be catastrophic--or they could be just what he needs to brighten his day! This hilarious and relatable tale of grumpiness gone awry will turn toddler tantrums to giggles in no time.

Don't miss the sequel, A Crankenstein Valentine!

Praise for Crankenstein:

"Expect many re-read requests from Crankensteins who may (or may not) recognize themselves."
Publishers Weekly

"Will the creature ever turn from "MEHHRRRR!" to merry? Youngsters will roar along with Crankenstein through this silly and sympathetic story of grumpy-grouchies."
School Library Journal

"Whoa. Be prepared for the intense frustrations, the moody outbursts and the green scowls of Crankenstein...Each setting reveals sly comic elements that both kids and their grown-ups will appreciate. Readers will laugh out loud...Get ready to read this aloud a lot."
Kirkus Reviews

"Sometimes-when you have to go to school, when you have to take cough syrup-all there is to say is "MEHHRRRR!"... This is a No, David! for slightly older kids..."
