Meet Mary Shelley...
As a child, Mary Shelley loved to read. One night, at a party, Mary was challenged to write a scary story. This got her thinking and dreaming about a scientist who created a monster! She wrote this down and eventually finished the novel we know today as Frankenstein. Mary understood that most people like to be scared sometimes, revolutionising the way readers experience fiction.
