Frankenstein's Matzah

A Passover Parody

  • Interest Level: Kindergarten - Grade 3
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

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!

A graphic picture book told entirely through comic bubbles, Frankenstein’s Matzah invites young readers to join in the joy of Passover (and science!) by conducting their own Super Seder Science experiments.
