it was amazing

This book is perfect for K-3 especially around Halloween. This is a story about a lonely since his two brothers were eaten by the big bad wolf pig. He then tries to create a friend in his laboratory. Porkenstein lends itself to teaching the concept of change within a character and what a true friend means. The students will respond to the humor and can identify with the characters.

Ch_jank-caporale This one sounds hilarious! I have to read it. Mary Shelley's version is full of moral questions about responsibility, judgement, loyalty, etc. and also questions the morality of men who try to play God. Maybe Porkenstein doesn't go quite that far, but if it raises moral questions, I want to read what it has to say! Five stars? Thanks for the review.
