Vampires The Truth Behind History's Creepiest Bloodsuckers by Alicia Z. Klepeis

Stories about hungry vampires hunting for a meal of fresh blood have been around for thousands of years. Take young readers on a trip through time to learn about ancient and medieval lore about vampires. Then explore how vampire stories have changed over time until these bloodthirsty monsters became the lonesome and tortured creatures often seen in today's popular culture.
