We rated this book:


The crayons are making a book. There are six, frightened townspeople and Frankencrayon (who is three crayons). The pencil is the narrator. The townspeople are frightened, because Frankencrayon is in their town (He’ll come on page twenty-two). Suddenly, there is a scribble. The actors scream. The crew and the cast members try to clean the scribble by scribbling on it. They make it bigger. They think they created a monster. They run away. Then, the book gets cancelled. Now, it’s page twenty-two, and no one is there but Frankencrayon, who finds the scribble. They give the scribble a mouth, eyes, and legs. The scribble says, “Thank you,” and walks away. And that’s it. The Mad Scientist was the one who made the scribble, because they dropped him out of the book.

I loved it, but the mad scientist part was scary (I like It’s an Orange Aardvark! better). This book was crayony and silly. I like the pictures. I like Frankencrayon with the scribble on page twenty-two. The author made the pictures by cutting paper with scissors and using crayons for the scribbles. I didn’t like the mad scientist. People who like other Michael Hall books will probably like this book. I can read this book myself.
