A story about a boy and his dog! Let's get to know them! The Characters Victor Frankenstein is a clever and industrious 10-year-old boy who is inspired by science. He lives Victor with his parents and dog, Sparky, in the town of New Holland. Victor immerses himself in making films and inventing in his attic workshop. When Sparky dies in a car accident, Victor uses scientific ingenuity to bring him back to life. Sparky Sparky is a devoted and playful bull terrier. He enjoys chasing balls and being the star of Victor's homemade movies. Sparky exudes tons of energy and enthusiasm. Mr. Frankenstein is a travel agent. He wishes his son
would play baseball and socialize more. Mrs. Frankenstein is a loving mother who encourages Victor's scientific pursuits. She even lets him use all her kitchen appliances up in his attic for experiments. Mr. and Mrs. Frankenstein He is the Frankenstein's crabby neighbor
who does not like Sparky or anyone destroying his perfect tulips. He is the Mayor of New Holland. Mr. Burgermeister Elsa is a soulful and somber classmate of Victor.
She lives next door with her tyrant uncle, Mayor Burgermeister. Elsa also has a beloved pet, her poodle Persephone, and truly empathizes with Victor when he loses Sparky. Elsa Van Helsing Persephone is a perfectly groomed black poodle with an enormously large poof of hair on her head. She is curious and flirtatious with Sparky and very loyal to her owner, Elsa. When Persephone and Sparky first meet in the backyard, the attraction is instantaneous and electrifying. Persephone Edgar is the misfit with no friends who wants desperately to be Victor's partner for the Science fair. He promises to keep Victor's secret, but spills the beans to the others. Edgar "E" Gore Toshiaki is an overly competitive and power hungry mad scientist who will stop at nothing to beat Victor in the science fair even if it means stealing Victor's ideas.

He is the first to go to Victor for help when things go very wrong. Bob Weird girl doesn't fit in well with the other kids in New Holland and it is easy to see why. She predicts strange happenings with a monotone voice and a bizarre stare. She always has her fluffy, white cat, Mr. Whiskers, with her. Weird Girl Nassor is very intelligent, serious and intense. He is not convinced Victor's experiment with electricity is real, but once he does believe it, he wants to steal his secrets. Nassor Mr. Ryzkruski is the new Science teacher at the New Holland elementary school. He has a thick Eastern European accent and a unique way of explaining things. He connects well with the students, but the parents do not understand his passion for science and teaching style. He inspires Victor to be a scientist. He teaches Victor that science can be used for good and bad things and that if a scientist does not put his heart into his experiments, there could be disastrous consequences. Mr. Ryzkruski Enjoy!!!!
