All of our jam has vanished from our doughnuts! Where could it possibly have gone? Has someone stolen it...?

Wait, what's that? Can you hear something coming this way? Quick, hide!



‘Jampires is a big jammy hit here. My 7 year old loved the story so much, she couldn’t resist drawing her own Jampire…A jammy delight!’ - Sarah Yewman, Wondrous Reads

About the Author

Writer-illustrator Sarah McIntyre loves comics, raspberry jam and inappropriate dinnertime conversation. Funnily enough, these things all relate to her books Vern and Lettuce, Jampires and Morris the Mankiest Monster. These titles have bagged prizes including the Sheffield Children's Books Overall Award, the Bishop Stortford Picture Book Award and the Leeds Graphic Novel Award (now the Young People's Comic Award). She blogs regularly and you can download free activity sheets from her website to go with each of her books. Parents, teachers, librarians, booksellers, anyone: feel free to use these to inspire creativity in your kids. (And you might have a good laugh trying them yourself!) David O'Connell is a writer and illustrator living in London, UK. He is the creator of MONSTER & CHIPS, a series of children's books filled with fun, adventure and plenty of disgusting food! He makes picture books as well - JAMPIRES with the brilliant Sarah McIntyre and he's currently writing some picture books that will be illustrated by Francesca Gambatesa. He also loves comics, and likes to make and sell his own mini-comics at comic shows around the country, as well as organising and running comic-making workshops for children.
