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

Reviews

I adored this book, it made me laugh lots and has a fab twist. This is definitely going on my favourite picture book shelf. * Juniper's Jungle * Laugh-out-loud funny. * Scotsman * Witty and atmospheric. * Tess * Plenty for junior readers to enjoy. * School Librarian * Witty and atmospheric, the story's carefully-laid clues culminate in a twist ending that will have young children clamouring for it to be re-read * TESS * It'll find a welcome place on any young child's bookshelf. * Bookbag * It'll find a welcome place on any young child's bookshelf. Recommended * The Bookbag *
