crestwood publishing monsters series
on a personal note: i have checked these out of my school library in the second and third grades along with others in the series.
That Dracula one is very formative.
This was a nostalgia trip. Except that my school library had The Creature from the Black Lagoon instead of Mad Scientists. I never checked out Frankenstein or The Mummy either, because we owned those on VHS.
Unfortunately, reading the book convinced me that The Wolf Man would be good. The pictures didn’t really sell how much of a sad sack Lon Chaney Jr. was.
