Dick and Jane and Vampires, by Laura Marchesani

dick_jane_vampiresI never read the original Dick and Jane books as a child, but I’ve seen them around as an adult. When I saw this one at the Penguin booth at the Texas Book Festival, I knew I had to have it. Mash-ups get really old really fast, but I didn’t mind this one at all. It was hilarious! The integration of the vampire into both text and illustration was perfect. Also, I was delighted that the text/story stayed at its original age level. No blood, no killing children, just Vampire showing up from time to time, either giving the kids a brief fun scare, playing jump rope with them, or even dressing in a lovely blue gown that Mother sewed. This is a seriously awesome book!!
