Gris Grimly's Frankenstein
This is the first fully illustrated version to use the original 1818 text and is destined to capture the imagination of those new to the story as well as those who know it well.
New York Times bestselling illustrator Gris Grimly has long considered Frankenstein to be one of his chief inspirations. From the bones and flesh of the original, he has cut and stitched Mary Shelley's text to his own artwork, creating something entirely new: a stunningly original remix, both classic and contemporary, sinister and seductive, heart-stopping and heartbreaking.
Perfect for fans of Edgar Allan Poe and Neil Gaiman's Coraline.
The illustrations are without a doubt freaky! Which is only fitting for a story such as Frankstein. I really just loved them and I loved what they added to the story. I think this could be a particularly good avenue to use with some kids or teens who don't necessarily want to read the intimidating classic and this could offer a starting place or a gateway to the actual novel.
