Vampire Boy's Good Night

Vampire Boy's Good Night by Lisa Brown.  HarperCollins, 2010.
(Okay, I may or may not be getting carried away with the cool Halloween effects in PicMonkey. )


Vampire Boy's Good Night [HarperCollins, 2010] has been out a few years, but sadly, I missed it until now.  The girls and I loved this one.  It's adorable, and not really scary.

Meet little Bela, a vampire:


Lisa Brown's illustrations are quite clever.  Here is Bela getting ready for the night.  Note what's missing in the mirror.


Bela goes to meet his little witch friend, Morgan, and off they fly into the night.  Bela wants to search for children, but in a sweet little twist, Morgan scoffs and says:  


But as they fly, they spy something interesting below.  It's a house.  Are these creatures like themselves?  Or are they actually children?!?!


The girls and I giggled throughout this book.  There are a lot of jokes hidden in the illustrations, and if you visit the wonderful website for the book, you can move your mouse around Bela and Morgan's rooms and catch anything might have missed.  The website is full of games, printables, and other treats, too.  Well done!  I wish I would have noticed this book when I was still planning storytimes for the bookstore.

And just in case I haven't sold you on this book yet, here is the trailer:

  4. I couldn't help myself, I had to write about it - and about Vampirina Ballerina! These books are not in Czech Republic, not yet, but anyway, I'm sure people will adore them. Thank you so much for beautiful posts!

    1. Very cool. I just checked out both posts! I hope you can read them soon. I wish I hadn't returned my Vampirina Ballerina books to the library. They would be fun to read to Big Sis's 2nd grade class tomorrow...
