Mrs Mad's humble opinion
9/10 Very good. I am pleased with this.
What's it about?
A funny history of the young Dracula!
What happens?
Wilfred is a vampire, not just any vampire, his father is Count Dracula! So why does Wilfred find it so hard to be like his family? He prefers milk to blood, loves the sunshine and dreams of living on a farm. Not what you would expect from a blood sucking monster! Then one day he meets Smirk and his life will never be the same again!
Is it easy to read?
Barrington Stoke books are specifically written to appeal to reluctant readers. Text is large and well spaced and there are illustrations to help the reader as well.
Anything else?
Another brilliant read from this wonderful publisher. The story is funny and well written. As always the illustrations make it even more interesting. This book will appeal to 8-13 yr olds with a minimum reading age of 8.
Other books by Michael Lawrence include The Poltergoose.
Who says so?
This review by Mrs Mad.
The publisher reckons...
A funny history of the young Dracula and how he was accidentally swapped at birth. His formative years are spent wondering why he feels so different from his parents - like why does he prefer blood to milk?
