The Frankenstein monster is an icon of horror. Even the youngest trick-or-treaters recognize Frankenstein's green-skinned costume. However, many people are surprised to know this monster's name is not actually Frankenstein. That's the name of its creator, Dr. Victor Frankenstein, from the nineteenth-century novel written by Mary Shelley. This fictitious doctor, one of the first mad scientists, was based on real-life researchers and their experiments. This compelling volume examines the work of Shelley and its possible inspirations in the world of science. The high-interest topic, thought-provoking sidebars, fun fact boxes, and historical images will attract all levels of readers.
