A fun and lively "monster" mashup combining the joy of Passover and Science, FRANKENSTEIN'S MATZAH: A PASSOVER PARODY by author K. Marcus and illustrator Sam Loman comes to life on January 16, 2024 from Intergalactic Afikoman!
"In this Passover picture book parody of Frankenstein, Vee, Victor Frankenstein's great, great, great Jewish non-binary grand descendant, wants to win the school science fair and become the world's greatest scientist. When Vee's experiment succeeds, zany chaos ensues, and Vee is left to wrestle with some Frankenstein-size ethical dilemmas. Watch Vee take center stage in this exciting science fiction Passover adventure!"
Told exclusively through comic bubbles and sprinkled with puns, kids will be inspired to conduct their own Super Seder Science experiments after reading this fun and humorous graphic picture book with a spunky main character. Back matter includes helpful information to explain Passover, Mary Shelley, and the scientific method.
The first night of Passover is April 22nd this year, so request a purchase from your library or buy now in plenty of time for the holiday!
Create your own Super Seder Science experiments just like Vee!
