About the Author

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797-1851) was the daughter of philosophers Mary Wollstonecraft and William Godwin and the wife of poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. She was eighteen years old when she began Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus and with its publication in 1818 created science fiction as a genre. She went on to write six more novels, many short stories, and numerous articles, but Frankenstein, her masterstroke, remains her best-known work.

GRIS GRIMLY est un illustrateur renommé. Il est surtout connu pour des livres tels que Tales of Mystery and Madness d'Edgar Allan Poe, Frankenstein de Gris Grimly et The Dangerous Alphabet de Neil Gaiman. Gris et sa famille vivent à Los Angeles.

Reviews

"Grimly enlivens the prose while retaining its power to both frighten and engage sympathy for the monster-creator Victor Frankenstein. This is a richly morose nightmare of a book, a primer for young readers on the pleasures and dangers of decadent languidness." -- New York Times Book Review

"Grimly's fans have been awaiting this reworking of Shelley's 1818 classic for four years, and they will rejoice in the end result. Readers encountering the story for the first time may find Grimly's images rise to view whenever they think of it." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Grimly proves himself a more adept assembler of parts than his subject proved to be; his product is no monster, but a pastiche of style and substance that will reanimate the original for yet another generation of readers." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)

"Grimly's unique and twisted style blends perfectly with the material and breathes new life into these characters and situations. . . . Grimly's beautiful and trim version is a great way to immerse a new audience in this important work. -- School Library Journal

"Grimly's haunting illustrations dramatically show the range of human emotion connected with Frankenstein and his monster-rage, despair, hurt, lament, and even joy and excitement. Though often dark, Grimly's version has a whimsical quality that will draw teens in and allow them to better access this classic novel." -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

"Gris has a natural empathy with the disfranchised, the lost. His line work becomes more elegant and precise with each book but it also becomes more and more emotional and expressive. Gris is a fabulist with the soul of a graveyard poet." -- Guillermo del Toro, director of Hellboy and Pan's Labyrinth
