Vampire Boy’s Good Night

Vampire Boy’s Good Night
by Lisa Brown
Published 2010 by HarperCollins
32 pages. Hardcover
Rating: 5/5

When the sun goes down and everything is wonderfully cold and dark, a vampire boy and a little witch go searching for children in the night. But this is no ordinary night. It is Halloween, and what they find may surprise them.

I can’t remember where I first saw this, but I knew I had to get it when I did. It’s just so adorable and I love to read children’s books every now and then.

The first this that caught my eye when looking through this book were all the clever little references to books and music associated with Halloween. In Bela’s room there are copies of Dracula and The Raven. Then, when Bela visits Morgan, his adorable witch friend, she’s brewing a potion while listening to Symphonie Fantastique. The Cruciable is sitting open on her bed. The inclusion of Berlioz’s programmatic symphony is so clever! This is yet another adorable children’s book I’ll have to show my children one day.

If you have some little ones, I recommend this for them.

  1. Aww, this one looks really cute. I remember trying to get a copy of this for my little niece. I'm glad you liked it! I'll have to pick it up for my niece soon. 🙂

  2. I love the cover on this one :)It's fun when the author of a children's book includes references that an adult will spot right away!
