This edition features ten, unique illustrations throughout and has been adapted for kids to read easily.

Victor Frankenstein dabbles with forces he cannot understand when he creates a monster at University in Geneva and brings it to life.

Mary Shelley's classic monster story has delighted readers and film fans for many years.

This version of the story has been specially adapted for kids from nine to twelve years old. The language and vocabulary are easy, and emphasis is on action using past, present and future simple tenses.

Punctuation meets UK or USA ESL/CEFR/IELTS Level B2 in most cases, although there are some 19th Century features of the text which do not comply and have been left intact to preserve the charm of Mary Shelley's text.

The vocabulary in this book is slightly harder than for The Mysterious Affair at Styles and The Secret Adversary. You should try those books first if you are not familiar with words like the following: truthfulness, occupied, unimaginable, commenced, mechanism.

Lazlo Ferran is a fully qualified English teacher and teaches in London. He has also published more than twenty novels, making him the ideal choice to adapt Mary Shelley's stories for children.

Vocabulary Stretcher and UK or USA ESL/CEFR Level B2 editions are also available.
