The book

"In a solitary chamber, or rather cell, at the top of the house, and separated from all the other apartments by a gallery and staircase, I kept my workshop of filthy creation"

As lightning flashes across the night sky, Victor Frankenstein succeeds in the ultimate scientific experiment - the creation of life. But the being he creates, though intelligent and sensitive, is so huge and hideous that it is rejected by its creator, and by everyone else who meets it.

Based on the classic tale by Mary Shelley, this gripping horror story recounts Victor Frankenstein’s terrible experiment to "build" a human without a soul.

Strikingly illustrated by Sean Hayden and rivetingly retold for a new generation of readers by Emily Hawkins, this new addition to Palazzo's children's Classics, Mary Shelley's classic horror story remains as powerful and gripping as the day it was first written.


After graduating from Farnham Institute of Art and Design, Sean began his career in a London animation studio where he worked on various TV and film projects. He has illustrated a number of new and classic children's books. He currently lives in London.
