What would you do if someone accidentally turned you into a vampire? At first it sounds pretty cool, right? But if you really think about it, being a creature of the night is not all it's cracked up to be: no sunlight, staying away from garlic, the craving for the "red suff." Gross, huh?That's exactly what Sebastian thinks. It all started the night he walked home from the...more

This book is a out a boy who was walking home when something knocked him over and when his friend helped him up and he felt around his neck and there was blood and he walled home himself and thought about it. In the morning a few days later, they made some garlic bread and vampires hate garlic and it looks to them like read crosses and kind of hurts them. He didn't go past the kitchen and he played a game with his little brother but when he went back to his bed, his older sister thought somethin...more

Keeping in mind that this was written for middle grade readers, here is my review:
Welcome to the charming town of Lewington. We have a wonderful elementary school, Washington Irving Elementary School, perhaps you’ve heard of it. Oh, that, how did you hear about that? Never mind, that situation was cleared up and there have been no further issues. Isn’t that oak tree lovely? Yes, the roots are breaking up the sidewalk, but it is such a lovely big tree. It is so sad that no one has built anything...more

I'm not sure whether to call this a three or four, or three and a half. It was a cute little kid book that was fun to read with my kids. I can say that I'll look for other books by this author. It was just chance that my daughter found it at the library and being the vampire lover that I am, I decided I would read it with both my girls.

It's a 'Reading Counts' book for anyone who has kids that take those tests at school. I'd recommend it to any age of reader, but if you're not someone who likes r...more

Sebastian is bitten while walking home from a movie. Now he’s turning into a vampire. Can he keep the truth from his family until he can figure out how to change back? This newly packaged edition of the second in Lubar’s series will be popular with the kids who want a vampire novel without any violence. The new cover is very appealing, as are the illustrations. I hope they republish the whole series as they can be read in any order. ***Crossposted to KISSTHEBOOK.BLOGSPOT.COM Check it out!

This would be a fun read for those who can't get enough of vampire stories. Middle schooler, Sebastian, was "slightly" bitten on the neck by a vampire and has all sorts of calamities befall him as he comes to grapple with his new-found vampire powers. Can he find a cure in time so it won't be a permanent condition?
