    Now, I have read many picture books that were not only funny for children, but also funny for adults and I have stumbled upon yet another picture book that was laugh out loud funny for both children and adults called Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich and Other Stories You re Sure to Like, Because They re all about Monsters, and some of them are also about food You Like Food, don t you Well, all right then or we can just say Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich to make it easier.In this book, there Now, I have read many picture books that were not only funny for children, but also funny for adults and I have stumbled upon yet another picture book that was laugh out loud funny for both children and adults called Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich and Other Stories You re Sure to Like, Because They re all about Monsters, and some of them are also about food You Like Food, don t you Well, all right then or we can just say Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich to make it easier.In this book, there are total of nineteen poems that detail several different monsters and the bad days they have, which includes Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich, The Phantom of the Opera, The Invisible Man Gets a Haircut, and The Lunchsack of Notre Dame Why Why did I not read this book when it first came out Actually, this happens to me a lot every time my book friends are recommending me various books at the time and it usually takes me like FOREVER to get around to those books Adam Rex was a genius in writing this book as the text is written in a rhyming text that really brings out the creativity of this book and the various jokes and humor managed to tickle my funny bone I loved the fact that each monster in this book were written in an extremely hilarious way and I was seriously chuckling to myself at seeing the hijinks that each monster get into My favorite poems in this book were probably the ones that involve The Phantom of the Opera, especially since the Phantom of the Opera kept playing random songs like Pop goes the Weasel and It s a Small World instead of playing an aria like he originally wanted and it was fun singing the poem according to the songs that the Phantom of the Opera got stuck in his head Adam Rex s illustrations were creative and fun to look at as all the monsters have hilarious expressions on their faces whenever they get into embarrassing situations My favorite image was probably of Frankenstein himself making a huge sandwich that contained all kinds of crazy ingredients that would make you scratch your head in confusion Parents should know that there is a brief mention of ass in this book, even though it is basically just describing a donkey and is not used in any inappropriate way.Overall, Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich is truly one awesome and hilarious book that everyone needs to check out as soon as possible I would recommend this book to children ages six and up since some of the humor might go over some children s heads and the use of the word ass might be controversial for some readers I would like to thank my Goodreads friend Brenda for recommending me this book Review is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog

    Four stars based on the parts I read I read half of this and enjoyed it Very humorous, witty, fun fun fun and creepy ghoulish without being too scary or gross The accompanying illustrations really add to the story and mood and there are so many fun little extras to find and read, like the newspaper articles characters are reading on the sidelines, etc BUT, I just could not get through this book in one sitting Maybe I am simply done with Halloween y books for the year, but it got to be Four stars based on the parts I read I read half of this and enjoyed it Very humorous, witty, fun fun fun and creepy ghoulish without being too scary or gross The accompanying illustrations really add to the story and mood and there are so many fun little extras to find and read, like the newspaper articles characters are reading on the sidelines, etc BUT, I just could not get through this book in one sitting Maybe I am simply done with Halloween y books for the year, but it got to be a bit of a chore half way through as this is a LONG picture book, made even longer by all of the aforementioned delightful illustrations and asides I will probably check it out again next year and finish it up, but I m giving four stars to what I did read so far and would definitely recommend it for Halloween, though for younger children reading it in a few sittings might be best since the book is made up of various short stories, limericks, etc rather than one cohesive storyline

    I should hate this book Between The Girl from Ipanema, luckily not much re Pop Goes the Weasel, but especially the infamous It s a Small World After All, It s a Small World After All, It s a Small World After All Ha I would have really liked The Invisible Haircut when I was young, but this is one I think I enjoyedas an adult than I would have as a kid I don t see kids getting all the jokes But that makes this one fun for adults to read aloud to kids they can enjoy it too I ve n I should hate this book Between The Girl from Ipanema, luckily not much re Pop Goes the Weasel, but especially the infamous It s a Small World After All, It s a Small World After All, It s a Small World After All Ha I would have really liked The Invisible Haircut when I was young, but this is one I think I enjoyedas an adult than I would have as a kid I don t see kids getting all the jokes But that makes this one fun for adults to read aloud to kids they can enjoy it too I ve never been much a fan of monsters, even the ones meant to be funny, but at this point in my life I can see the charm of the ones in this book And the sandwich actually looks appealing So much was very funny, including the songs stuck in The Phantom of the Opera s head and, one of my favorites, The Mummy Won t Go to His Eternal Rest without a Story and Some Cookies The poems were chuckle worthy and at time hilarious and the illustrations were a hoot, but some of them would have scared me when I was at the target age for this book I was simply an easily frightened child.So, I liked this, and really, really liked parts of this, and I wanted to love it especially since some Goodreads friends have raved about it, not to mention most Goodreads members but I just don t love it It s very clever but it s not one of my favorites In fact, if we could assign half stars, I d probably downgrade this to 3 stars

    This book was featured as one of the selections for the October 2011 Witches and Monsters themed reads for the Picture Book Club in the Children s Books Group here at Goodreads I m so glad it was we laughed our way through this book and had so much fun singing the ditties We just visited Disney World last week and avoided the It s a Small World ride, since we d done that one before The girls didn t really remember it, so I sang it over and over again to show them how truly saccharine and This book was featured as one of the selections for the October 2011 Witches and Monsters themed reads for the Picture Book Club in the Children s Books Group here at Goodreads I m so glad it was we laughed our way through this book and had so much fun singing the ditties We just visited Disney World last week and avoided the It s a Small World ride, since we d done that one before The girls didn t really remember it, so I sang it over and over again to show them how truly saccharine and annoying it can be So the poor Phantom of the Opera has our sympathy We had to watch Astrud Gilberto sing The Girl from Ipanema on YouTube in order to get the tune in our head for Now the Phantom of the Opera can t get The Girl from Ipanema Out of his Head The new lyrics are so funny and clever Our girls loved The Mummy the best The naughty little ditty about The place in France where the naked ladies dance seeabout it here is just so catchy and funny that they were singing it all afternoon, making up their own G rated, thank heavens lyrics and laughing hysterically They were so entertained that I agreed to google YouTube the song and we learned that it was credited to Sol Bloom, who penned it for an attraction called A Street in Cairo at the World s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus s arrival in the New World in 1492 So, considering that this is Columbus Day weekend, I guess the song is quite appropriate All in all, this is a very funny book and we read through it a couple times, revisiting our favorites again and again It has a lot of musical and literary references, subtle and sarcastic humor, and general nuances that will go far above the head of most young children It s fairly long, too, and we ended up reading it throughout the day And againand again I recommend this book for older children and adults

    This is the storybook if you love those creepy black and white movies with characters like Wolfman, Dracula, The Phantom of the Opera and even if you just like Witches and Bigfoot There are wonderful illustrations with equally humorous rhymes, comics, limericks and stories What makes it such fun is that these monsters are doing day to day things but in a fun and silly way like Frankenstein making a sandwich, the invisible man getting a haircut or even the son of Dracula going to the dentist I This is the storybook if you love those creepy black and white movies with characters like Wolfman, Dracula, The Phantom of the Opera and even if you just like Witches and Bigfoot There are wonderful illustrations with equally humorous rhymes, comics, limericks and stories What makes it such fun is that these monsters are doing day to day things but in a fun and silly way like Frankenstein making a sandwich, the invisible man getting a haircut or even the son of Dracula going to the dentist I like that the illustrations are witty and not gloomy or scary and will easily entertain children and adult alike
