Description
Piece by piece, a mad scientist attempts to assemble his build-your-own Frankenstein in time to celebrate the monster's Halloween birthday. Much like a child following "simple instructions" as he tries to put together a toy, the poor frantic inventor hums and babbles to himself as he throws legs, arms, red sneakers, and a polka-dot party hat all over his wild and wacky laboratory.

With illustrations by celebrated collagist Warren Linn, the medium is indeed the message here, with torn paper on wood serving as the perfect foil for the put it together, take it apart, put it together again theme. Any child or parent who's ever tried to assemble a toy, following the so-called simple instructions, will laugh at the surprise ending.
