This book is about kids who want to prove Mr. Frank is Frankenstein. The author is Elizabeth Levy. One of the lessons in this book is don't judge people if you don't know them or don't know them that well. In this book Dr. Frankenstein uses a lot of electricity. Some people think he is building a robot. When they find out what he is really doing, they are still sure he is Frankenstein. If you want to find out, go to a library or Walden's or something and check this book!

I'm not sure if this book is part of a series. This book is different from the others because I never read a book with Frankenstein in an apartment. I felt okay because it was kind of boring but at the end it was shocking because Mr. Frank was moving out of the apartment. This story reminds me of myself because two kids are spying on Mr. Frank and I always spy on my brother and my parents. My favorite part was when the two kids were going into the storage room to look if Mr. Frank was making a robot. I thought this book was okay but I liked it because two kids are in it.

I recommend this book to 2nd graders because I think some of the parts in the story are interesting like when Robert goes into Frankenstein's apartment. You can only read this if you like Frankenstein.
