More about Mary’s Monster
THIS IS THE STORY of how a pregnant teenage runaway became one of the most famous authors of all time. Mary Shelley was barely sixteen when she left home to follow her heart and the man she loved. She believed in free love and the right to choose the way she lived. But it was a daring move for a woman of her time. She was cast out of society and disowned by her family, and she had no one to turn to when she lost her baby daughter just days after giving birth. But Mary persisted. She poured her grief, pain, and passion into creating the literary masterpiece Frankenstein, an iconic book still revered two hundred years later. Pairing free verse with over three hundred pages of black-and-white watercolor illustrations, Mary’s Monster is a gorgeous tribute to a resilient woman and the indelible mark she left on the world.
