Are your kids begging to go see Frankenweenie like mine are? From creative genius Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas”) comes “Frankenweenie,” a stop-motion animated heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.

With Frankenweenie coming out this Friday (10/5), your kids don’t have to wait too long, but they can get in on the fun action of it now with “Frankenweenie: An Electrifying Book” available for FREE through iBooks on the iPad! This fun ebook is chock full of movie extras for you and your kids!
