The cover looks sort of ominous, doesn't it? I loved reading this book. It's got everything you could want, lovely, lovely characters, humor, great writing, some dead things that go bump in the night(or try to find their Undead Prince Charming.) - a lot of fun. Taking place in a picturesque environment, the plot is something of an intriguing web that will just weave itself around you, subtle but strong, and you'll find yourself irrevocably immersed. Peter's family life is not fun at all; the struggles his mother goes through are very touching, and I couldn't help but wonder what would come of their little family. When they move in with Peter's grandfather, in a big scary house, the real adventure begins. Peter makes a new friend very quick, Dill the awesome, and together they start exploring a mysterious new world with that sense and wonder of adventure that most of us shed as we grow older. All kinds of oddities go on in their little town. What I loved most, and a lot, were the characters. I loved pretty much each and every one of them, in fact. Darren Pillsbury is greatly talented in building fabulous characters. Peter Normal, our brave little hero, is absolutely adorable; he's had it tough, but he has great spirit. His new friend, Dill, is equally as adorable, or perhaps even more, he's that kind of very fun kid that says strange things, thinks fast and makes everything into a great adventure. They form a great dynamic duo, adventuring and discovering the world. The fresh curiosity, the vibrant spirit, the unmistakable cuteness kids have are all there. The attention-seeking, absurd little quirky girl is there as well, Peter's sister Beth is quite amusing. I could just picture her, walking around in her armor-swimming suit. The one I liked most of all as a character though was Peter's grandfather. He's the grumpy, sort of stern, proper sort of man, that acts tough enough but is quite a dear deep down, and I find his interaction with everyone, especially the kids very entertaining. It's been a long, long while since I've had this much fun reading a novel; I felt like a kid, and I loved every minute of it. You could call it sort of dark-ish, maybe, but to me it doesn't seem too much so. It's not really scary, but it will be a lovely little scary story for kids above 13 or so. I do recommend this to anyone who wants to feel very young again, and this is a great read for all ages alike. Go ahead, read it, I'm absolutely sure you'll love it just as much as I did!

I've been reading these stories since when they were posted online as a blog. The main characters are well-done: they don't have any superpowers to help them fight against the seemingly invincible monsters they face. My favorite part is seeing the clever, sometimes wacky ways Peter finally defeats them. Honestly, Peter feels too mature for a ten year-old, but you know, in real life, real ten year-olds can surprise you sometimes, too. He is just within the realm of possibility, and is a more interesting character for it. Wise-cracking Dill is mostly side-kick material, but he does that very well. He is a more flawed character, whose best qualities are loyalty and unintended humor. Buy this book. You won't regret it!

I LOVE this book. I found it while searching for Frankenstein novels and, while I usually much prefer paper books to e-books, I think it was worth buying a Nook to read about Peter's adventures.

I think this might be geared to young persons but i couldnt put it down. I laughed through all of these short stories. Peter is a boy not yet ten & all this stuff happens to him & his friend Dill. These two kids are funnier than heck & Dill maks these books with the stuff he says. I just loved him. Anyhow these stories are well written & funny even for an adult. There are 400 plus

I enjoyed the book. It reminds of the trouble my brother and cousins got into when we were kids. Not that we had vampires, but just innocent boy type behaviour. Loved the one liners every now and then. It sounded so much what a boy would say or expressions they would give at that age. Like kissing a girl. Yuck! The boys were in danger and all Dill could remember or comment on was that Peter kissed a girl! Not as concerned about the vampires, as he was about his friend kissing a girl. Funny, well written, and can be enjoyed by the whole family. Even the mother sounds like my mom as I was growing up.

I am a 55 year old gamma and I love these books! They are pull you in right away written and,better yet, hysterical! I have read the first 3 in the set (9 books or so) they are so good! I realize they are about a couple of 9 year olds, but they get in and out of awesome trouble and you cant stop reading. I actually get a little nervous late at night when I am reading these. I love these books and recommend you go ahead and give them a try, you wont regret it. Each 3 story book has 901 pages in it. I like them better than getting each book individually.
