L.J. Ganser squeezes every bit of fun out of Rex's amusing poems and wordplay as he creates entertaining voices for Frankenstein and his many friends. This poetry collection is loosely clustered around Frankenstein's impending wedding and the catering questions it raises: You can't serve garlic if Dracula's coming, and silverware is off-putting to werewolves. There are also pieces about Edgar Allan Poe's writer's block and a work titled "Off the Top of My Head: The Official Blog of the Headless Horseman." The poetry reflects Rex's offbeat humor, which is as likely to please adults as it will kids. All listeners will appreciate Ganser's dramatic abilities, whether he's bringing to life tensions between Frankenstein's bride and her mother-in-law, or the challenge of feeding monsters with eclectic dietary needs.
