Did YOU look like
your parents when YOU were born?
Well, when Frankie Stein was born, he didn't at all like his father
or his mother. He wasn't scary at all. In fact, his parents were worried
because he was "CUTE!" And, he was sweet. He never made scary
faces or sounds like everyone else in the family. His hair was blonde,
and his first tooth was WHITE! What was the Stein family to do? Even
though they read him scary stories, painted his hair, dressed him like
his father, and taught him how to walk scary, he just wasn't scary.
would you have done if you had been Mr. and Mrs. Stein? You'll be surprised
when Frankie himself figures out how to become the scariest Stein of
