Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Vampire bats, Dracula, and other blood drinkers are the topics of this text. Although the book is divided into four chapters, there is no table of contents. The first chapter briefly covers information about vampire bats, how these bats obtain blood and share it with another vampire bat. Moving along to the second chapter is an overview of the infamous Vlad Tepes, also known as Vlad the Impaler or more commonly known as Dracula. The remaining chapters cover some of the myths, legends, and history of blood drinkers. The illustrations are boldly colored and found throughout the book. The stories are interesting in terms of history and facts but some of the descriptions are very gruesome and may turn your stomach. The introduction begins by wondering about the taste of blood, which is reading that is not for a queasy reader. Words of warning are noted on the back cover of the book, but it is like a dare to read the text. This book is part of the "All Aboard Reading" series which has books at different reading levels.

Let me start off by saying it is very graphic in parts, for a young person this is just ridiculous. Here is a small part of the book, see if you find it appropriate: The scythains rode horses over eastern Europe and central Asia from 7th century bce to 1st century. here is a recipe for blood brotherhood.(but don't try this at home)Gather a sharp knife, a cup, some wine, an arm, and a friend. use the sharp knife to cut into your arm. let your blood drip into the cup. Repeat for future blood brother. Add a bit of wine to the glass. stir the blood and wine mixture well. drink, share and enjoy I was amazed to see we carried this book at my store, Obviously no one has read it because I am convinced they would not respond well.
