Young Reading Series 4

In the yellow moonlight, the hideous monster opens his eyes. Dr Frankenstein’s quest to create life is complete, but at what cost? Why does the creature now turn against his maker? Is there anything anyone can do to stop him?

Part of the Usborne Young Reading series, this retelling of the classic horror story is ideal for newly independent readers.
