Reviews

"Both timely and terrifying, Mary's Monster revives an origin story too seldom told. Mary Shelley lives again in this arresting hybrid of a graphic novel in verse." --Gregory Maguire, New York Times-bestselling author of Wicked"Mary's Monster is extraordinary in both art and language. The reader is swept up by its passion, its sadness, and the incredible strength of its protagonist. Stunning, heartbreaking, and beautiful." --Kristin Cashore, author of the Graceling Realm series"What an intensely, darkly beautiful book. An astonishing, profoundly moving vision of Mary Shelley's life and her creation."--Tui T. Sutherland, New York Times-bestselling author of the Wings of Fire series"Lita Judge breathes life into Mary Shelley just as Mary Shelley breathed life into Frankenstein's monster. A remarkable achievement." --Karen Hesse, MacArthur Fellow and Newbery Medal-winning author of Out of the Dust"With gripping text and heartbreaking images, the story unfolds like a gothic fairy tale--crackling with rage, riven with pain, and pulsating with ferocious beauty." --Laura Ruby, Printz Award-winning author of Bone Gap "Lita Judge gorgeously entwines sensuous illustration and verse to render Mary Shelley's vivid, turbulent story as no one else could. Darkly lovely, Mary's Monster will haunt you." --Julie Berry, Printz Honor-winning author of The Passion of Dolssa "Mary Shelley lives again in this arresting hybrid of a graphic novel in verse, a work drenched in sfumato art and terse, direct language." --Gregory Maguire, New York Times-bestselling author of Wicked"Lita Judge breathes life into Mary Shelley just as Mary Shelley breathed life into Frankenstein's monster. A remarkable achievement." --Karen Hesse, MacArthur Fellow and Newbery Medal-winning author of Out of the Dust"With gripping text and heartbreaking images, the story unfolds like a gothic fairy tale--crackling with rage, riven with pain, and pulsating with ferocious beauty." --Laura Ruby, Printz Award-winning author of Bone Gap "Lita Judge gorgeously entwines sensuous illustration and verse to render Mary Shelley's vivid, turbulent story as no one else could.
