From the duo that brought you Giracula comes this story of an unlikely (and undead) friendship, the second book in the ?Bump in the Night ?series.

Lonely middle-schooler Angus Munch has one friend—a very old frog named Frank, the science classroom pet. When Angus takes Frank home for the weekend, disaster strikes, and Frank croaks! It will take all of Angus's science knowledge to bring his friend back to life—can he do it before school on Monday, or is Frank amphibian history? Find out in Frogenstein!

About the BUMP IN THE NIGHT Series

What do you get when Frank the class frog meets disaster on a weekend stay with a science-savy student? Frogenstein of course!

And what do you get when you cross a 6-foot neck with vampire bats? A vampire giraffe with— what else? — a sweet tooth.

Little ghosts and goblins love scary stories. The BUMP IN THE NIGHT Series puts silly twists on classic favorites sure to bring smiles (not screams!).

BUMP IN THE NIGHT monsters are a Halloween treat.


"Giracula...so fun to say aloud, it’s almost worth purchasing the book for the title alone...a loveable cartoon creature...appealing to fans of giraffes, vampires, or protagonists with a sweet tooth." School Library Journal

"Tuchman draws the gangly protagonist with a googly eyed energy that should amuse readers through the numerous sugar-driven scrapes." Publishers Weekly
