Dracula marries FrankensteinDracula Marries Frankenstein GN – Papercutz releases a new Anne of Green Bagels story. Anne and her friends search for the ideal location to make a horror movie in suburban Megatown. They get lucky and strike a deal with Augusta Herringbone to film at her creepy castle-like home. But their film, Dracula Marries Frankenstein, sets off Augusta’s homophobia, and their film set is destroyed in a fire. Anne is undaunted, and pulls from the ashes forgiveness and understanding, a finished film, an underwater dream fulfilled, and a location for their next movie. This mix of chapter book and graphic novel tackles some serious issues while keeping it accessible to tweens.
