The Vampire Blog

Written by Pete Johnson

The Vampire Blog Synopsis

Marcus was convinced that vampires didn't exist. He was very wrong . . . On his thirteenth birthday, Marcus Howlett is faced with a bombshell. His parents are half-vampire. And, although he hates the thought of it, he is about to become one too. But, as he secretly blogs about the horrors of his new fangs, bad breath and cravings for blood, Marcus is unaware that his life is in serious danger . . .

The Vampire Blog Press Reviews

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 - The Vampire Blog builds some real tension with the threat to Marcus, 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 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 *
