There was a tall man that some people thought was Frankenstein. They were on a field trip to the science museum! They thought he was a Frankenstein because he had stitches!

Happened across this book and remembered reading several from the series as a child. Amusing diversion.

This is a fun story for early readers (2-3 grade level) that teachers some vocabulary and encourages kids to use context clues. The answer to the students' question (about whether or not Frank, the assistant, is actually Frankenstein) is never really answered, so it's up to the reader to use the clues they've been given to decide. It's not a phenomenal read, but the storyline is interesting enough to keep struggling readers involved.

The collection of "The adventures of the Bailey School Kids" stories are among my all-time favorite children's books. Witty, mischievous and fun, these short and silly books continue to bring giggles to the young and old. Just as I have enjoyed them as a kid, my own children also love them today. I even catch myself re-reading them (alone) from time to time. What can I say? I guess I'll always be a BSK kid at heart.

A silly series that creates more questions than it answers. It's great for formulating theories as well as predictions. The class dynamics should be very familiar to those of the Magic School Bus generation.
