One thought on “Frankenstein Takes the Cake

  1. Kathrina

    My 11 year old brought this home from the library, drawn to it as it is written by his current FAVORITE AUTHOR EVER, Adam Rex The plan was that he would read it aloud to me and his 8 year old brother The result was not expected 11 year old loved the humor, got most of the jokes, appreciated the satire, but frequently bound himself up in grammatical misreadings and inattention to requisite punctuation We learned that reading poetry aloud, even guffaw causing casual rhyme, is not the same thing as [...]

    I like cake I like Frankenstein Ipso facto I like Frankenstein Takes the Cake Oh fine Maybe it s a little complicated than that Maybe I like other things about the book too Perhaps the art Maybe the characters And there s always the off chance that what I really like about is that it s a picture book poetry sequel that takes cool monsters and makes them loveable Rex s first Frankenbook, Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich was an odd little puppy Poems about monsters, a weird variety of artistic style [...]

  3. Qt

    Deliciously funny book of monster related poems, illustrated in a wide range of styles A perfect Halloween book, but, for us monster lovers, also great any time of year

  4. Leslie

    Shelia nails it with the fantastically weird collage Frankenstein Takes the Cake will appeal and will impress Rex adopts different styles and media and it is really kind of disgusting how successful he is with each The creativity is inspiring and inspired to say nothing of entertaining The opening pages feature a fun interactive comic in which the reader is at first mistaken of identity, and after the confusion is cleared, they get the closer look they need and I won t spoil it for you But it is [...]

  5. Elaina

    The entire title is Frankenstein Takes the Cake which is full of funny stuff like rolling heads and giant gorillas and zombies dressed as little girls and Edgar Allan Poe The book, we mean not the cake.I m almost tempted to give this one five stars My ten year old loved this book It s zany even though I hate that word and strange and hilarious and novel There is just something fresh and new about the way the book is written and illustrated The only reason I m giving it four stars instead of five [...]

  6. Sam Bloom

    Just a notch down from his first collection, but still truly funny Personal favorites Off the top of my head the official blog of the Headless Horseman the Edgar Allan Poems, especially Edgar Allan Poe should be writing or sleeping, not doing a crossword puzzle the answer to 7 down Tipper Gore Dracula Jr wants a big boy coffin done in the style of a Peanuts comic, with Dracula Jr as the Charlie Brown character and some pitch perfect Peanuts mannerisms and especially the book s centerpiece, The F [...]

  7. Stephanie

    I truly enjoyed this book The illustrations are fantastic and the poems some rhyme and some don t are hilarious and very clever Probably catering to the adult readers then the children Still a fun read for any time of the year but definitely has a Halloween focused themempires, witches, headless horseman and so on Unless you are like me and love Halloween all year cackles I ve heard his first book in this series Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich is very good as well and wished I read that one first [...]

  8. Paul

    Another wonderful book from Adam Rex The poem format bothered me a little in this one, because Rex s humor and creativity are so out of bounds that it seems a little ridiculous to then constrain them within the box of poetry, but overall it s kept pretty lively Like some other reviewers, I do question if this material would appeal to kids as much as it does to me, but as I am generally a selfish knave, such thoughts will not cause me to delete stars from my rating In other words.Suck MUD, toddle [...]

    Holy crap This was almost as hilarious as Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich After realizing Adam Rex is quite a prolific artist and writer and of course reading the aforementioned book I checked out every Adam Rex book out of the Huntsville, AL library This being the sequel , we had to read it first So worth it Hilarious poems, and everyone in the family is cracking up Can t wait to read his other books.

  10. Julie Suzanne

    Absurd stories, poems, blogs, and advertisements from monstrous characters of our favorite movies and poems Many references to Poe s The Raven and other things that the supposed target audience ages 5 10 wouldn t get I found the humor much clever than my son did in this one I personally LOVED it and hope to own it someday I ll pull it out again when my son studies The Raven at an age when he gets it better.

  13. Jennifer

    I bought this book for my nephew, flipped through it, read it, admired the illustrations, and then kept it for myself I m not the least bit sorry.

  16. Christina Taylor

    Self aware from the opening endpages to its closing endpages, Rex s second volume of Frankensteinian verse is simultaneously the gift and the curse a paean to the horror fiction of the past two centuries as well as a lyrical skewering of it Because of the rather broad body of work to which it alludes, younger readers may enjoy and understand the poetry only superficially, while an older audience with exposure to Godzilla, King Kong, the Wizard of Oz, vampires, werewolves, E.T Alfred Hitchcock, a [...]

  17. Rebecca

    Follow up to the equally hilarious Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich This one features the same mix of witty poetry, monster movie jokes, mixed media and a variety of visual storytelling methods oil paintings, pen and ink, comics panels , and pop culture Don t miss The Official Blog of the Headless Horseman and the woes of Edgar Allen Poe quoth the raven, Tipper Gore In the small print in the back, I read something interesting Some of the birds that appear on page nine have been altered from content [...]

  18. Sarah VanDyke

    I loved this book I am always looking for books that are different and interesting This book is similar to tales such as The Stinky Cheese Man because it involves a story the moves along in connection with poems of different themes It hooked me in right away with a humorous comic of Frankenstein getting married Then, there are poems in the form of a blog by a pumpkin head that continue throughout the book My favorite was the poem about the Sphinx because it made me laugh There are segments regar [...]

  19. Erma Talamante

    A very, very funny book of poems, rhymes, Poe, and Frankenstein The fun starts on the inside cover, Wolfman, Drac, The Mummy and The Creature from the Black Lagoon assuming that you the reader are Frankie But, the stories and poems don t stop there This book offers a reason to the strange origin of these stories, a sampling of Haikus with a haiku about haikus , Frankenstein s new in laws, blog posts from a certain Horseman, Alien contact, and , culminating in a wedding extraordinaire This was fu [...]

  21. Catherine Austen

    I got a real kick out of this one My 9 year old enjoyed it, too, when we read it together, but it was hard for him to catch all the allusions It s best suited to older readers As a fan of Edgar Allan Poe, I especially loved Rex s spoofs of the Raven The Headless Horseman s blog was great But the Kaiju Haiku page really stole my heart This is strange collection of poems and art, not a typical storybook Throughout, the artwork is gorgeous and varied photographs, cartoons, paintings, line drawings [...]

  22. Carissa

    This was another super cute book by Adam Rex The inner cover of the book has a little comic with the monsters stopping by and thinking that you, the reader, are Frankenstein and they are wishing you a happy birthday The mummy just says, Meh The rest of the book is written in the rhyming and short story style just like the first book It really is very cute At the end of the book the author says in rhyme, of course that he knows that Frankenstein is really the doctor and not the monster and to sto [...]

  23. Joy

    The sequel the Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich The entire title is Frankenstein Takes the Cake Which is Full of Funny Stuff Like Rotting Heads and Giant Gorillas and Zombies Dressed as Little Girls and Edgar Allan Poe The Book, We Mean Not the CakeNot quite as funny as the original but it has the same rhyming structure except there is an underlying storyline about Frankenstein s upcoming marriage to the Bride of Frankenstein Dracula returns, this time not having luck with the garlic bread at the b [...]

  24. Jamil

    Comic strips, poems, excerpts from the Headless Horseman s blog, Kaiju Haiku This is the best book I am reading this morning while it s slow on the desk at work The Frankenstein bits are funny, Poe s Raven is hilarious There are a couple misses Peanuts style Dracula Jr isn t as Charles Schultz as you want it to be But this is a fun fun book

  25. Amy

    I loved, loved the first Frankenstein poems but was a little disappointed in this sequel The format is a little different with lots of photographs which I thought was the best part of the book but I don t love the poems Not as catchy or engagingoh well You can t win them all.

  26. Heather

    I was very disappointed The first book was hilarious, but the second one has VERY tough rhymes some don t read as rhyming at all and has too many references to things kids won t know Sad

  27. Kelly

    I m a big fan of Adam Rex This book is very clever, but I think it s really a picture book for older kids or even adults There are so many references to literature and folklore that little ones haven t been exposed to yet At least, mine haven t So there is quite a bit that Z didn t understand, and attempts to explain some of it just become confusing Even so, there were parts that made Z giggle She liked the Medusa story a lot.

  28. Roger

    I love monsters, especially the nonscary versions This is full of nonscary monsters and lots of humor 4.5 stars

  29. Dana

    Kind of a combination of a graphic novel, picture book, poetry book and blog, this book is best for children ages 10 and up.
