Fang-tastic for newly confident readers, these gorgeously illustrated stories are full of excitement, and little vampire Amelia is as cheerful, resourceful and generous heroine as you could want. In this adventure she and her friends are heading off for a week away with the rangers. They’re expecting outdoor games and activities, but end up teeny-tiny thanks to a curse, a curse they can only lift by mending a broken heart. They do of course, and make lots of new friends along the way, including a regal bee and kind-hearted mermaid. With a fabulous set of characters, these stories are always lots of fun, a quirky mix of the everyday – feelings and friendships – with other-worldly, slightly ghoulish goings-on. Laura Ellen Anderson has lots of fun with the plots and language, and these are deservedly popular. Readers who enjoy Amelia’s escapades will also enjoy A Moon Girl Stole My Friend by Rebecca Patterson.

March 2018 Book of the Month | In a nutshell: gothic fun and games with gorgeous cast of characters There’s a wonderfully eccentric Addams-family-esque cast of characters in Laura Ellen Anderson’s gorgeous new series, the special friendship between them giving these little stories real oomph. In this episode little vampire Amelia heads out of Nocturnia into the very different world of the Kingdom of Light. She’s accompanied by friends Florence the Yeti, Grimaldi and Squashy, her pet pumpkin, as well as Tangine – the plan is to find his missing mother, Fairyweather, who disappeared when Tangine was just a baby. An unfortunate altercation with a grumpy wishing well means that the grown up in the party is quickly transformed into a bee, so the little group are on their own. The stories are told with real style and humour; the illustrations, also by Laura Ellen Anderson, are equally delightful and this is a great new series. ~ Andrea Reece A series to recommend to fans of the Witch Wars or Isadora Moon books.
Amelia Fang - a little vampire with a big heart! And this is the first in the series of the book where we meet her. Amelia lives with her parents Count Drake and Countess Frivoleeta, and her pet pumpkin Squashy, in Nocturnia - a city in the Kingdom of the Dark, where glitter is terrifying and unicorns and sparkly fairies are the stuff of day-mares. Amelia and her best friends Florence the yeti (NOT a beast!) and Grimaldi the reaper may want to spend their time watching Deathflix at Fang Mansion, munching on Unlucky Arms cereal or toe-jam on toast, but they can’t help falling into the most gripping and ghoulish adventures. Whether it is saving Squashy from spoiled Prince Tangine, travelling to the petrifying Kingdom of Light to rescue Queen Fairyweather or finding the ancient yeti treasure in Yeti Mountain, the friends’ adventures are always howlingly hilarious and fang-tastically exciting.
