Synopsis

Dracula and Frankenstein are friends. They have good times together, but when Dracula decides to have a Halloween party on the same day as Frankenstein's, their friendship is put to the test. Clever Dracula must decide if popularity is worth the price of his most important friendship, with mild-mannered Frankenstein.

These two classic characters have been re-created in this funny and revealing picture book, just right for the youngest of monsters!

Not to be outdone, Drac throws a party, too—and "somehow" Frankenstein's outbound invitations disappear from his mailbox (a pair of pictures shows Dracula in his cape, eyeing the envelopes awaiting pickup, and then Dracula as a bat, flying away with the envelopes in his clutches).
