Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Joining the many supernatural/classic publishing mashups of the moment, this gifty gem incorporates illustrations from the original Dick and Jane series--with the addition of a Lugosi-style vampire. The children are at first fearful of the infiltrator: "Look, Jane, Look. There is Father. Hello, Father. Oh, oh, oh. That is not our father. Run, Jane! Run, Dick!" In a later section, however, the vampire becomes a playmate, jumping rope and playing house: "Vampire is my baby. Vampire is my funny little baby." Though the conceit wears a little thin, the inspired concept and skillful execution should give it coffee-table staying power. Ages 5–up. (Aug.)

    "See Dick Play. See Jane Play. See Dick and Jane Play with a vampire!"

    Dick and Jane are surprised to see a bat. Over time, the bat is comfortable with Dick and Jane, their parents and their baby sister Sally. He shapeshifts into a Vampire and becomes friends with Dick and Jane. Soon he is playing with them and welcomed by the rest of family though dad is a bite or two concerned that he may have a cape wearing rival. Eventually the milkman delivers bottles of blood along with milk.

    Broken into three short stories with illustrations, this is a lighthearted romp that early elementary school children and older readers who grew up on Dick and Jane will enjoy. Each tale is further broken into short shorts so that the younger readers can take breaks. Although I think a child vampire instead of an adult would be more apropos especially playing with the children, the targeted audience to include nostalgic boomers and the older Gen X will enjoy Dick and Jane making new friends summed up: "See Dick Play. See Jane Play. See Dick and Jane Play with a vampire!"

    Hilarious!

    Like all Dick and Jane books, this is written in an easy manner, perfect for beginning readers. The friendly illustrations are not at all scary for children.

    From an adult perspective, it is hilarious. Why is there a vampire under the bed? Why is the mom so nonchalant when he shows up? Did she secretly invite him?

    It is awesome.
