Keith Graves’ wacky illustrations and laugh-out-loud text will leave young readers laughing—clamoring for an encore performance.   “Ghoulish gross-outs abound . . . the punchline . . . will likely hit primary graders’ funny bones.” —Publishers Weekly

    A sixth-grade Goth girl who thinks she’s a vampire encounters her greatest nemesis when she enrolls at Sunny Hill Middle School in this hilarious and entirely original take on the vampire genre for middle graders. Svetlana Grimm has recently discovered she’s a vampire. The clues are all there: she can eat only red foods, has to sleep under the bed because of her heightened sensitivity to light and noise, and can read others’ thoughts. But this new discovery is making her transition from home-schooling to attending sixth grade at Sunny Hill Middle School that much more difficult. After all, what can she possibly have in common with those jellybean-eaters in her class? She prefers to watch them from afar in her hidden lair atop the Oak of Doom in her backyard. But things get more interesting when Svetlana’s cruel yet beautiful science teacher, Ms. Larch, reads her thoughts. Svetlana is excited to have found another of her kind—until her new neighbor, The Bone Lady, fills her in on Ms. Larch's true identity and her own. What happens when your sixth-grade science teacher might also be your immortal enemy?

Through simple language and engaging illustrations, this book explains the concept of peer pressure. It encourages a solid sense of self-identity—or “elf-identity”—and teaches kids how to say “No.”
