I read this with my freshman ESOL students. I have not read the original version. Initially I was only aware of Frankenstein via movies. The book is so much more complex and now I am really interested in reading the non-adapted version.

After reading this it is so much harder to look at the Creature as only a monster. Instead I look at him as a son who was abandoned by his father. Furthermore it made me realize that it is so easy for people to judge someone strictly by how they look. As I finish

I thought it was really good. i really liked the book it told me so many things about the story it was interesting to read about this book.
This book was a great way to introduce an amazing classic to children in a less convoluted writing style. It was also perfect for discussing how people react to the unknown and things we don't understand. I definitely recommend it to all the budding horror lovers and for the parents who want their children to read more.

I was good and interesting I really liked it.
Since my school will become a prek-8 in the fall (it is now 5-8), I have been expanding my reading adventures. This 94 page adaptation of Frankenstein actually made me think about reading the original and filling in all the details. As for its audience of young readers (raeading level is 3.4)will reading this version point them towards other Stepping Stones classics? Great Illustrated Classics? Or will they just enjoy it as a page-turning adventure whose adult characters represent a departure fr ...more

I read this book to my fifth grade class, and they loved it. The adaptation does a good job of capturing the emotions behind the Monster's actions. However, sentences are constantly written as fragments. Because of the poor sentence structure, I would not want my students reading it on their own and picking up these poor writing habits.
Had to re-read the original after reading the Dean Koontz Frankenstein series. Always loved it but i saw it in a whole new light. It made me question who was truly the monster, the creature or the creator.
Kind of creepy and weird.
