The dark, captivating story of one remarkable young woman. And her monster. Creative genius...? Inventor of science fiction...? Pregnant teenage runaway...? Who was the real Mary Shelley? Mary's Monster is the compelling and beautifully illustrated story of Frankenstein's author Mary Shelley - the original rebel girl and an inspiration for everyone from teenage readers to adult.

Aged 16 and pregnant, Mary runs away to Switzerland with the married poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.

Few people would have guessed that that fateful act would lead to a gothic novel still celebrated 200 years later.

But cast out by her family and isolated by society, Mary Shelley created Frankenstein and his monster, forged in the fire of her troubled and tragic life.

Part biography and part graphic novel, Mary's Monster is an engrossing take on one remarkable young woman and her monster.
