A Crankenstein Valentine by Samantha Berger
Illustrations by Dan Santat
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Release Date: December 16, 2014
He's BAAAAACK! See what happens to an ordinary kid on the most lovey-dovey, yuckiest day of the year-Valentine's Day. Cheesy cards, allergy-inducing bouquets, and heart-shaped everything? It's enough to turn anyone into a monster. But Crankenstein might just find a way to turn his sour day sweet... because even the crankiest monsters have heart.
Secretly, I think we all have a hidden Crankenstein within. Perhaps not towards Valentine's Day, but there has to be something that everyone else loves that you can't stand, but might come around under the right conditions. Of all the holidays though, I can understand why Crankenstein would be a little grumpy. A perfect book for storytime and full of craft ideas, this is a fun holiday book.
