    Here s a funny story when I was about 10 years old, my mother bought me the second part of this series used I don t even remember why, only that I liked it a lot and kept wondering why all the vampires were good It took me 14 years to find, get, and read this.CONTENTSince I bought the matching German edition I m sure the names were somewhat altered So there s this town, ruled by Vampires, and their youngest son, Valentin does not like blood at all He sets out on an adventure, when he finds out, that he can actually stay in the sun safely Then there s Vernon, his evil brother, who wants to become king.SOMETHING OVERALLThe book is quite old, but none the less funny to read Since it s about vampires it does not feel outdated, and horse drawn carts and castles fit as well as 40 years ago.It bothered me somehow, that the Vampires were not evil enough They were great as characters, they just did not fit my imagination of this species.STYLE OF WRITINGSometimes a bit chunky in the translation, but I was pleasantly surprised, the translation worked so well There were a lot of word plays and while I can t be sure everyone made it to the German version, the ones that did worked well and got me smiling sometimes not my type of humour mostly, but well done nonetheless.CHARACTERSIn my opinion the Vampires were very human Apart from Vernon, who s straight out e...

    I loved this book from the very beginning and my delight with it only grew as the page numbers progressed This is a book for those who love silly, slapstick humour and characters that warm your heart One of the things I enjoyed about this story was that the vampires were so typical of the old movie style monsters that have made the image what it is No one sparkled Nice change This was such a fun experience and now that I know there are books in the series I am greatly looking forward to reading them and seeing what else this author has in store for his readers I also loved Igon There are some wonderful characters in this story that you will remember after you have finished it I m not usually one for humour books...

    Re read this with my son 6 after enjoying it on loan from Southport library over thirty years ago It s pretty laboured but you can ham it up quite enjoyably unlike Morecambe s heir, David Walliams.

    I received this ebook from NetGalley in exchange for review.This is a fun, quick novella about a family of vampires that rule over the town of Gotcha Their son, Valentine, was raised as a vampire, but doesn t feel that he fits in with is blood sucking family, and wants to escape to live a normal life This story chronicles his journey, and the consequences of h...

    This is a really funny story that will certainly appeal to children who are independent readers It is written in chapters, each with a rhyming couplet as the chapter s title The story concerns our the vampires King Victor and Queen Valeeta and the royal princes their son Prince Vernon and their adopted son, Prince Valentine From the very first chapter the scenes and characters are portrayed with great descriptions and plenty of humour It is al...

    I quite enjoyed this I m not sure it was quite funny enough to be a properly comic novel or had enough plot, but it was perfectly enjoyable whilst it lasted Perhaps it works better read aloud It felt very male so perhaps it would work better for younger boys rather than an adult woman wi...

    From the first page to the last you are pulled in You will find yourself laughing out loud at some of the humor in this book Younger audience will love this as well as an older one I was given this book in exchange for an honest review via Netgalley.

    A great premise that should have led to a cute fun story, but the writing is just too scattered The humor is inconsistent never quite humorous enough It was a chore to read confusing to try to follow.
