Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kirsten Shaw
In this title of the "Monster Wars" series, vampires face off against werewolves in a battle between supernatural killers. O'Hearn uses the strengths and weaknesses of each monster to determine which would win in a fight to the death. Speed, attack style, special powers, shape-shifting powers, and weaknesses are all compared and rated as it leads up to the final, hypothetical, bloody battle. Each chapter contains pictures of scenes from an array of movies and illustrations, with Kendree illustrating the final vicious showdown. Not lacking in educational facts, readers will learn details about vampires and werewolves, including the inspiration for the legend of Dracula-Romanian royal Vlad Tepes. Each chapter features frightful facts and vocabulary definitions, and the last pages include a glossary in addition to a directory leading readers to suggested resources to learn more. O'Hearn also takes the time to reassure young readers the stories contained within are "just stories." A great read that is sure to catch the attention of reluctant readers who will appreciate the action and creativity in this grisly and raw match up. Reviewer: Kirsten Shaw
