"Until quite recently, Joe Bodenland had been living in America. In the twenty-first century. Then a timeslip hurled him through space to early 19th century Switzerland. Catapulted back two centuries, Joe met up with Victor Frankenstein--and his infamous monster. He had always thought they were just figments of Mary Shelley's imagination. But there is no mistaking it. Joe had to come face to face with the hideous creature and his creator! When Joe Bodenland met Mary Shelley in 1816, her tale of terror was not yet complete. But Joe had a 200-year advantage. He knew how the story would end. Could he do something about it before it was too late?"--Page 4 of cover.
