Synopsis

Dear Vampa by Ross Collins

The Pires are cursed with new neighbours. Things were just fine on Nostfer Avenue until the Wolfsons arrived. There seems to be no end to the new family's strange rituals. They stay up all day long, lock their windows at night, and bathe - in sunshine. What's a nice vampire family to do? 'Laugh-out-loud funny.' - Scotsman
