You probably recognize Frankenstein’s creature from the classic Hollywood movie, or as a Halloween costume. In Mary Shelley’s original story, Victor Frankenstein was a science student who built a creature out of dead body parts and brought it to life.
Victor thought his creature looked like a monster, and he was scared of it. Other people are cruel to the creature because they’re afraid of him. The creature is even scared of himself when he sees his image reflected in a pool of water!
Do you think it is fair that everyone thinks the creature is a monster because of the way he looks?
