Legend is correct that Mary Shelley began penning FRANKENSTIEN in answer to a dare to write a ghost story. What most people don't know, however, is that by age 19, she had been disowned by her family, was living in scandal with a married man, and had lost her baby. Mary poured her grief, pain and passion into the powerful book still revered two hundred years later, and in MARY'S MONSTER, author/illustrator Lita Judge has poured her own passion into a gorgeous book that pays tribute to the life of this incredible author.
