Lucy Rowland and Ben Mantle
‘How dreary! How dreadful! What a wonderful life!’ Mr and Mrs Dracula’s joy expands with the arrival of their son. However Dracula Boy confounds them with his love of teddy tea parties and glitter. Therefore, he’s directed to refrain from admiring the clothing in neighbourhood children’s wardrobes for it’s time to frighten!
Armed with this challenge, ‘Dracula Spectacular‘ enters Rose’s window. Why is she crying? Could it be the terrifying approach of Dracula Boy, or might there be another reason? How might these two help each other? Would it be possible for Dracula Boy’s parents ever to appreciate their son’s individuality? Readers want him to be happy and appreciated yet he’s a vampire!
Lucy Rowland is a skilful picture book maker of titles such as Little Red Reading Hood. It is a pleasure to welcome ‘Dracula Spectacular’ aboard.
