Thirteen-year-old Vladimir Tod really hates junior high. Bullies harass him, the principal is dogging him, and the girl he likes prefers his best friend. Oh, and Vlad has a secret: His mother was human, but his father was a vampire. With no idea of the extent of his powers, Vlad struggles daily with his blood cravings and his enlarged fangs. When a substitute teacher begins to question him a little too closely, Vlad worries that his cover is about to be blown. But then he faces a much bigger problem: He's being hunted by a vampire killer.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joella Peterson
This is the first book in "The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod" series, but this edition is in the graphic novel format. The story is still the same great story of Vlad, the only known teenager to also be a vampire. His parents died in a mysterious fire, and Vlad is being raised by his mom's best friend Nelly, who knows he is a vampire. But the situation is hard on him. Vlad has a lot of secrets to keep...not to mention a lot of sunscreen he has to keep putting on. Thankfully, Nelly works at a hospital and can get blood that is almost expired for Vlad to drink and infuse into his food. Then Vlad's teacher goes missing, and a strange new one takes his placeā€”one that wants Vlad to admit that he is a vampire. But how does he know? And will Vlad be safe if he shows Mr. Otis who he truly is? Since this is the beginning of the series, readers can expect a lot of set up and quite a few unanswered questions left hanging at the end of the book. However, the illustrations are great, effectively showcasing a gothic teenage vampire in an almost normal world. Also, the pacing is pretty good, with quite a bit of variation in the size of the panels. However, unlike many graphic novels, the panels in this book never are full-page in size, even during exceptionally important moments. Reviewer: Joella Peterson

    The art wasn't that bad and I didn't know this had a graphic novel. Starting to notice some of them have graphic novels. The first book was good and this one is too.
