While flipping through an old copy of How to Care for Your Monster, I spotted this picture.
"Wow", I thought, "James Woods modeled as the Frankenstein Monster back in the 70s! He sure is a multi-faceted actor."
I really enjoyed How to Care for Your Monster when I was a kid, and it's just as enjoyable now. I also know two little ones that are absolutely in love with my decades old copy of it, insisting on readings from it nightly. You can still get them (as per my links to amazon), but only used copies (It's out of print). The author is Norman Bridwell, also known for his much more famous books about Clifford the Big Red Dog.
If James Woods ever comes through town again, maybe I could get him to sign it. How many people have pictures of the Frankenstein Monster signed by James Woods? Not many, I bet.
