Grade 4–7—Written in a chatty style that draws readers in, these titles attempt to explain the origins of and continuing fascination with the individual monsters. Drawings and movie stills make up the bulk of the illustrations. Frankenstein and Vampires also include brief excerpts from the novels Frankenstein and Dracula. However, since Frankenstein is not the name of the monster in Mary Shelley's book, the references to him as such are erroneous. Although Krensky clarifies this misconception in chapter two, he continues to refer to him in subsequent references as "Frankenstein," which is confusing. There is also a mistake in the description of the plot of Young Frankenstein. Gene Wilder's character is not the son of Victor Frankenstein but his grandson. Vampires is missing several sentences in its description of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In addition, a caption of George Hamilton as a vampire in Love at First Bite is incorrectly labeled as being from the movie Dracula: Dead and Loving It. Despite some errors, these titles are sure to entice horror fans.—S K Joiner, Brazoria County Library System, Angleton, TX
