    Big brother is the narrator of this adorable, sweet story and ma

    Big brother is the narrator of this adorable, sweet story and makes quite an accusation concerning his baby sister.  Don't get me wrong, he loves his little sister, Tootie, but all that instantly changes.  You see Tootie magically, overnight, grows a pair of extended canines that look exactly like Vampire fangs.  But are they really?  




    Big brother tries to convince his family that she really is a vampire, after all she bites her fangs into everything: the furniture, her favourite toys, and especially into him!  He shouts out, "Youch, Tootie!  No bite!" quite often.  Mom has many excuses why Tootie is in the baby-phase of biting and explains, "She's hungry that's why Tootie won't sleep at night." "And take off that garlic necklace."  But big brother is not convinced. Why just look at her hairline, her favourite foods are bloodred, and she doesn't sleep at night because Vampires don't sleep at night!  Tootie went from adorable to deplorable in his eyes, overnight. On shopping day big brother puts Tootie in a cape and gives her a sign that says, "Wanted good home for Vampire Baby."  Low and behold, on aisle 13 in that supermarket, a real Vampire family arises and offers to take the Vampire Baby "homey-womey."  But when their boy shouts at Tootie for chomping his nose, her big brother comes to her rescue and decides to keep his baby sister after all.   He discovers she is not so bad after all and is a keeper.




    The illustrations are simple pen-and-ink and watercolour.  They are cartoonish and really drive the story home.  Personally, I loved them.  This story is a great way to teach kids about loving younger siblings in the family and also gives you, the parent,  a chance to teach about "no biting" if that is a problem in your family.   Perfect for gift giving and especially now you can tie it in with the Halloween which will be arriving soon.
