Crankenstein by Samantha Berger is one of my kids’ favorite books lately. It’s a short book about “Crankenstein,” a green-faced kid who says “MEHR” when he doesn’t like something: bedtime; long, long lines; cold Halloweens. They say “MEHHRRR” every time Crankenstein does, but I think their favorite part is when Crankenstein meets another Crankenstein: he laughs! And so do they: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
The kids love the book, and so do I. It’s right on target about when kids get cranky, and it’s fun. We have lots of visits from Crankensteins in my house (but they don’t like it when I point it out…).
