What would happen if one of the greatest scientists in history got obsessed with creating life? That is the question at the heart of Frankenstein’s Monster and Scientific Methods, a children’s audiobook by Carlos Aón. This book tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, who becomes so determined to create artificial life that he eventually succeeds – but not in quite the way he planned. His creature is huge, ugly, and dangerous; and instead of being grateful for its creator’s efforts, it starts killing people. Can Victor fix his mistake before anyone else gets hurt?
