Frankenstein (Usborne Young Reading Series 3)

Author(s): Rosie Dickins

Learning to Read

Written when Mary Shelley was only nineteen-years old, this tale of a young scientist's desire to create life still resonates. Victor Frankenstein's monster is stitched together from the stolen limbs of the dead, and the result is a grotesque being who, rejected by his maker, sets out on a journey to reek his revenge. Shelley confronts the limitations of science, the nature of human cruelty and the pathway to forgiveness with language and imagery.
