If vampire fever is driving you mad in your house and you've got children who are too young to read Stephenie Meyer's series or the huge array of Twilight look-alikes then perhaps this is the book for them? What do you know about vampires? Do you want to know more? Do vampires really drink blood? Can they ever appear in daylight? This book will attempt to address and answer some of the questions surrounding these dark, mythical creatures. Not only will you learn the truth behind the myths, you will find out about vampires around the world and how to distinguish between real-life stories and literary legends. As well as important facts, this book also includes practical advice on both identifying and avoiding these dangerous beings. Read about what to do if the worst happens and you find yourself face to face with a blood-sucking fiend!
