PB Planet Spotlight: Do Not Build a Frankenstein!

Big PB Planet applause for Do Not Build a Frankenstein! by Neil Numberman (Greenwillow Books, HarperCollins Publishers, 2009). The new kid in the neighborhood has some very important advice to give: do not build a Frankenstein! He should know--he made that "mistake!" But after detailing all the awful things that come of having your very own Frankenstein, will the new kid succeeded in convincing everyone? Numberman's goofy, fun illustrations and authentic voice have plenty of kid-appeal. Perfect for Halloween or anyday, this non-scary, unusual buddy/pet story will likely become a big hit. Zoom on over to your local bookstore and bring it back to your home planet today!

What a great title! This is one of those that makes me think, "Why didn't I come up with that?"

Hi, ladies! Jeannine, you're totally right that it is a fun book, and Linda, I know EXACTLY what you mean! They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but for writers, I think it's what you said! Neil Numberman wrote me back, and he's totally cool! Check out his website:
