Vampire School: Stage Fright (Book 3)by Peter Bently, Chris Harrison
Vampires Lee, Billy, and Bella must figure out how to carry on with the school play when the lead loses her voice.
Children's Literature - Sarah Maury SwanThe third entry in a series about vampire kids in school has Bella losing her voice just before the children's production of "Snow Fright and the Seven Dwarfs." But clever Lee comes up with the solution. Bella mouths the words, while Lee hides behind a piece of scenery and sings for her. The show is a resounding success, which garners Bella and Lee parts in a real play. Geared for beginning readers and probably meant to attract boy readers, the story contains situations that non-vampire kids might encounter in school. The story is slight, but then, too heavy a plot would turn new readers off. The usual types of children found in school will allow readers to relate and keep reading. In addition to Lee, Bella and Billy are all pleasant little vampires, but Lucy is an annoying braggart. Her parents pander to her every wish. Big Herb eats too much; hence his name. Some of the names are amusing, such as the teacher's, Ms. Gargoyle. Reviewer: Sarah Maury Swan
