I would recommend this book for children ages 7 to 10, who want to become writers, historians of literature, or who just love history.

I would categorize this book as historical fiction, because it talks about Mary Shelley, an actual person.

Although the graphics, (illustrations) are meant for younger children, the content is probably for a bit more elder children who will be able to grasp a concept of this book.

Contradicting this, these characteristics of this book allow younger readers to learn more about Mary Shelley. Also, at least everyone has heard of the story of Frankenstein, and the kids (7-10) who really enjoy this tale can at least get more in depth with the author including basic information.

I often buy children's books even though my children are grown. I found this at a used book sale and am glad I bought it because it is an excellent book! I love the illustrations but also the text. It gives a not-too-brief overview of what Mary Shelley's life was like growing up and after she married. It was so good I wanted to seek out Frankenstein and add it to my reading list.
