'You can't knock a Pete Johnson book. They're highly accessible and always au fait with current tween preoccupations, so they're perfect for readers looking for full length books that don't take too much of a toll. But best of all, they are funny .. Johnson's tween characters are always wry, ironic and dry, cracking jokes that their parents often miss but their readers notice with glee .. This is not to say that the horror element is completely window dressing .. and there are some creepy scenes in the woods and some gruesome scenes with a goodly dollop of fangly terror. Perfect.' - The Bookbag
'Pete Johnson's approach to the very fashionable theme of vampires was very refreshing, with lots of humour thrown in but still a little bit of tension and scary bits thrown in. But also because at last here is a vampire book which is suitable for slightly younger readers! It's a vampire book that doesn't take itself too seriously. Marcus is very sharp in his delivery of one-liners and it is quite hilarious at times. The characters are well designed and believable; I was particularly fond of Tallulah who manages to be fierce and vulnerable at the same time.' - Library Mice
'Pete Johnson's modern tale consists of Marcus' online blog in which he discusses his extraordinary discovery and the chilling events that ensue!' - Nursery Education
'Once again award winning Pete Johnson has produced an accessible, amusing and enjoyable story.' - Audrey Baker, School Library Association
