Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 8+ Count Dracula’s heir should have the best life in the world! Set to inherit a huge castle, a grand title and the fame of being the greatest vampire in the world, Wilfred should have had a great future ahead of him. But there is nothing about being a vampire that Wilfred likes. Above all, he hates blood! He’d far rather drink some nice fresh milk from a cow. Something seems to have gone very badly wrong. Luckily, Wilfred meets Smirk and the twists in this entertaining mystery are unravelled.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+


Young Dracula by Michael Lawrence

Before Count Dracula became one of the greatest, most feared vampires of all time, he was just a young boy called Wilfred who didn't really feel like he belonged anywhere. Wilfred's dad, the old Count, doesn't think his son is up to the task of being a great vampire - he thinks Wilfred is a wimpire! Can Wilfred show his father what he is really made of? A must for all fans of the CBBC Young Dracula series.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+
