Frankenstein's Dog is the fourth book in the Goosebumps Most Wanted series. It was published in 2013.

The cover art shows a cute but horrifying stitched up dog.


Kat is reluctant to visit her uncle Vic Frankenstein because of all the rumors about him. But Kat is relieved to find that even though he lives in a dark, old castle-like mansion, Uncle Vic is a quiet, gentle man, a scientist interested in building robots with artificial intelligence. Also, Kat loves Poochie, Vic's small, adorable, fluffy white dog. But after an accident occurs in her uncle's lab, strange things begin to happen. Has Kat created a monster? Or is something else responsible for the horror that is unleashed?

  • The surname of Vic Frankenstein is an obvious allusion to the classic horror icon Frankenstein.
  • The title and cover could be viewed as misleading because Poochie is not the true villain of the story. The dog is more of a plot device than an actual villain.
  • Like Jekyll and Heidi, this story is also about a scientist who has the same name as a scientist from a fictional story.
