She Made a Monster

A New York Times 2018 “Best Illustrated” Book

2019 SCBWI Crystal Kite Award Winner

Based on Mary Shelley’s own account of the origin of Frankenstein, this beautifully spooky picture book tells the story behind the most famous monster of all!

“Eye-catching artwork and engaging storytelling give this biography of a fascinating woman even more appeal.”—BOOKLIST

“An elegant picture book that will signal to young readers that there is more to the story than the familiar green-skinned monster.”—KIRKUS

“…Fulton excels at capturing the spirit of Shelley’s novel. Like a scary story told around a campfire, Fulton’s short, descriptive passages and occasional fictionalized dialogue set the mood, build suspense, and drive her focused retelling of that night”–HORN BOOK
