My Little Vampire

ML decided months ago she wanted to be a vampire. We bought a black dress for the occasion. Recently, we’ve read several vampire picture books.  The books reminded us she needed a cape, fangs and bright red lipstick.  They have been purchased and are ready for Friday night.

Below are our favorite vampire picture books.  Plus a bonus for parents of toddlers.

Vampirina

Vampirina Ballerina written by Countess Anne Marie Pace and pictures by Mistress of the Night LeUyen Pham – ML loved the illustration of Vamperina demonstrating her plies and arabesques to all the creatures in her house… a ghost, Frankenstein, a mummy and more.

Vampire Boy

Vampire Boy’s Good Night by Lisa Brown – ML found the illustration featuring two legs with black and white tights and ruby red slippers sticking out from under a house hilarious.  We saw The Wizard of Oz Broadway play last year; so ML fully appreciated the reference.

Dear Vampa

Dear Vampa by Ross Collins – “A young vampire writes a letter to his grandfather bemoaning his new neighbors.” The vampires decide to sell their house.  ML and I howled when we saw who bought the house. Here’s a hint about the buyers.  On the full moon, they’ll be howling too.

0-545-14597-X

The Sleepless Little Vampire by Richard Egielski – Why isn’t the little vampire sleeping.  Is it the noisy creatures around?  Spiders, bats, cockroaches and more?  Of course not.  He’s waiting for the sun to rise.

Hampire

Hampire! by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen and illustrated by Howard Fine – Who is this vampire and what does it eat?  Not your average vampire book.

I'm a Vampire

I’m a Little Vampire by Sonali Fry and illustrated by Sanja Rescek – It’s a board book so ML wouldn’t let me read it stating, “That’s for babies.”  But it’s so adorable I had to include it for those of you with toddlers.
