Fangs aren't what they used to be in Transylvania when Dracula is forced to open a boy's prep school to make ends meet. At Tombstoun the famous "finishing-off" school the students learn biology with Professor Frankenstein, who teaches them how to make new friends; chemistry with Dr. Jekyll and his stand-in, Mr. Hyde; and French with M. Quasimodo ("Ou est le pain? Le pain is in le neck.") The illustrations show Victor Ambrus at his exuberant best using part comic-strip and part full page paintings. The constant flow of sight gags combined with one-liners , lampoons and satirized fairy tales will be enjoyed by little devils everywhere!
VICTOR G. AMBRUS has illustrated over 200 books and twice won the Kate Greenaway Medal. His most recent books for Oxford include Pinocchio and Peter and the Wolf.
