My thoughts....

I loved this heart touching children's read. Our your J.D. Has grown up an orphan and sets out to find his other parts ( literally the body parts that went into making his father Frankenstein's monster). If he is the son of Frankenstein's monster 14 year old J.D. reasons out that his cousins (only relatives) are the children of the original Frankenstein's part donors.

J.D. Goes on humorous adventures to discover his relatives while learning about himself along the way. This is a very sweet and heart touching read that I acquired for free via the publisher for review. The illustrations add so much whimsy and fun to the story.

My 8 year old son loved it. Nothing like following along the son of Frankenstein's monster to get a good laugh and plenty of adventure. I recommend this book very much. One of the best illustrated I have seen in a while.
