How can we be on the front flap of a canceled book?

Good question.

Praise For…

“A just-for-fun mash-up of monster movie references and schoolroom shenanigans…Hall’s genius application of crayon drawings and cut-paper collage creates a product that any child could see himself making, and that’s how artists and authors are born. A monstrously entertaining read.”

“The bright cut-paper crayons hold a running commentary as a humorous Greek chorus, and the scribble’s appearance against both black and white backgrounds adds striking visuals, effectively supporting the ultimate message of inclusion and creative problem solving.”

“Hall fills his story within a story with intrigue, theater, and a whole lot of silly. …The illustrations are compelling, with cut-paper crayons and a variety of textures and typefaces.”

“This book’s complex plot-within-a-plot structure provides punchy entertainment to keep readers engaged throughout and offers inspiration for thinking about theater, bookmaking, and storytelling.”

“A lot of fun…it will grab and hold the attention of many little characters who like to play monsters.””

“Perfect for all ages…Hall’s tale elevates Frankencrayon above simple entertainment, beginning with a nod to classic literature and slowly delivering a story within a story, with unexpected turns that will guarantee a laugh…this delightfully creative book, populated by its charming ‘scary guys,’ deserves multiple readings.”
