About the Book

A young slime scientist is surprised when her latest creation comes to life in this funny and clever picture book twist on Frankenstein.

Book Synopsis

A young slime scientist is surprised when her latest creation comes to life in Frankenslime, a funny and clever picture book twist on Frankenstein.

Victoria Franken is a slime scientist.

Her experiments lead to amazing slimes. Until, one dark and stormy night, her latest experiment goes awry and her newest creation COMES TO LIFE!

Joy Keller's clever text and Ashley Belote's humor-filled art combine to create a fun picture book twist on horror movies like Frankenstein and The Blob, that also explores the scientific method and the importance of recording observations and results. The author has also included a couple of Victoria's best slime recipes, although you'll notice the secret formula that brought her slime to life is missing.

Review Quotes

This title is great for group read-alouds or independent reading. The story is entertaining, and kids are sure to get a kick out of the detailed illustrations... Highly recommended for all picture book collections. -- School Library Journal, starred review

'With its lively, science-y text and pore-over-able cartoony illustrations (including LOL-worthy endpapers), this picture book, with its welcome brown-skinned-science-girl protagonist, will stick with readers. --
The Horn Book

Victoria is a wonderful, inquisitive protagonist of color with a warm heart, and three of her amazing slime recipes are appended. -- Booklist

Horror movie-flavored suspense keeps readers on the edge of their seats, and young scientists will appreciate the slime recipes included in the back matter. --Publishers Weekly

It's alive!!! This is a must-read book if you have a young child that is into slime. A clever picture book version rendition of Frankenstein's Monster, Joy Keller and Ashley Belote has created a truly delightful read. Ashley's illustrations are brilliant with so many details to keep your eyes wondering the pages.
