9780316126564_p0_v1_s260x420Everyone has a Crankenstein day once in a while and this fun story can actually help parents talk to their kids about being cranky in a fun way!  A Crankenstein “is a monster of grumpiness that no one can destroy! “The story tells the reader where you  might find Crankenstein – when you wake them up early in the morning!, when it’s time for school, when it’s really rainy, or when it’s too hot for popsicles!  Crankenstein can also be found in a really long line, and let me tell you – I feel like Crankenstein standing in a really long line too!

This story is a lot of fun with great illustrations that show what a Crankenstein looks like!  And the ending has a great surprise about how to turn a Crankenstein back into a little boy or girl, but more importantly as I said before this is such a fun way to talk to kids about controlling their behavior and making the choice not to turn into a Crankenstein!  This is a definite must read if you find yourself in the company of a Crankenstein.

Check out this fun YouTube book trailer and video of Crankenstein kids by illustrator, Dan Santat.
