Launching a new graphic novel series for young middle-grade readers! Shelley Frankenstein loves to create scary monsters, but for some reason they always turn out cute… until this time.
Shelley Frankenstein is the great-great-great-granddaughter of a pretty famous mad scientist. She loves to be scared, and tries to make creepy creatures to spook all her friends… but all her experiments seem to backfire. The other kids love her adorable creations. What a disappointment!
Finally Shelley and her little brother/assistant, Iggy, stumble upon a haunted graveyard that gives them an idea for the ultimate monster. Throw in a couple abandoned toy animals, and behold… Cowpiggy! Will this new creation send everyone running in terror, like a proper monster? Or will love and cuteness triumph?
There’s twists and turns around every corner in this delightfully upside-down graphic novel for sweet and spooky independent readers from bestselling illustrator Colleen Madden.
