Reviews
"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."--Booklist
"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."--Kirkus Reviews
"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."--The Horn Book
"A lot of fun...it will grab and hold the attention of many little characters who like to play monsters.""--Boston Globe
"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."--BookPage.com
"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."--School Library Journal (starred review)
