Frank Was a Monster Who Wanted to Dance

I so wanted to love this Dancing Monster. A Frankenstein-esque patchwork monster decides he wants to dance, he does it amazingly to the wild approval of audiences. John mcferrin reviews the career and works of frank zappa. This is going on the to-buy-for-the-little-kid list. May contain limited notes, underlining or highlighting that does affect the text. Young listeners will respond to the comedy, the catchy rhythm, and especially the yuck factor induced by Frank's dancy disintegration. This is a close cousin to Boogi Bones, written by Elizabeth Loredo and illustrated by Kevin Hawkes.

May contain limited notes, underlining or highlighting that does affect the text. Suddenly his head began to unzip!! The audience loves him, but his head, which looks like an acid-green baseball with a zipper, comes undone, spilling out his purplely brain. He's very proud of himself, though, and doesn't mind that he fell apart. I just had to run. The central message will be admired by any parent: pursue what your heart desires despite how others may judge you.

Frank Was a Monster Who Wanted to Dance

So begins this monstrously funny, deliciously disgusting, horrifyingly hilarious story of a monster who follows his dream. Newcomer Graves pays generic, goofy homage to Frankenstein and to 1960s-era hot-rod art. Terrifying all who has seen. This would be a fun book to read at Halloween - or anytime we're feeling silly! Then he danced like his shoe size instead of his age! So he put on his hat, and his shoes made in France. At ThriftBooks, our motto is: Read More, Spend Less.

Frank Was a Monster Who Wanted to Dance

And then he starts to fall apart, and by the end of the book audiences have run away. As he danced and dazzled. He heads to a local theater after putting ants in his pants and really wows the crowd. Keith Graves' wacky illustrations and laugh-out-loud text will tickle the funny bone and leave readers clamoring for an encore. It was an excellent story, in part because it stands in contrast to so many similarly-themed picture books. The grossed-out audience departs as Frank loses an arm and an eyeball. So he put on his hat, and his shoes made in France.
