I always shake my head at people who say they don't like series. Are they crazy? Nothing makes me happier than encountering a new series with an excellent concept and knowing I'll be able to return to it again and again. Scream Street is one such series, about Luke Watson the werewolf, Rhesus Negative the vampire and Cleo Farr the mummy. They all live in Scream Street, home to all kinds of supernatural creatures like surfer zombies and farting goblins.

I loved this from cover to cover - the exce...more
These books are really short and quick to read, great story and fun characters. I think I'm going to buy the second book

Fang of the Vampire is the first in the Scream Street Series. Luke Watson and his parents unwillingly moved to Scream Street where there is no electricity and his neighbors are Resus Negative (son of two vampires), Cleo Farr (a mummy), and other supernatural creatures. Luke doesn’t mind their new neighbors as he is a werewolf, but he decides to get his ‘normal’ parents back to the real world. Mystery mixes with adventure and supernatural creatures. The plot moves quickly and the characters are e...more

Luke has just transformed into a werewolf for the third time and he and his parents are shipped off to Scream Street where other “interesting” life forms live. There Luke meets a vampire, Resus, and a mummy, Cleo. The three become friends and once they realize the only way off Scream Street is to find the six relics of the founding fathers of the street, they begin their quest. Will Luke and his family escape Scream Street?

Cute book, but I think that it would be more interesting to an elementar...more

Even though this is a childish book it was very worth reading... Tommy Donbavard turned an ordinary boy into a cool less ordinary boy... I dont know but something about this book made me read it I have read nearly all of them but I cannot find the next one... This book allowed me to fantasise my own world creativly which is why i gave this book a 4... I would tell Tommy Donbavard to carrry on writing :)

I think this is a really great series. Lots of fun and our three main characters get up to a whole lot of mischief. Great for reluctant readers. I borrowed the first book but will absolutely be buying the next ones, can't wait to find what Luke, Resus and Cleo get up to next! :)

Please note that my rating of 4 stars is in comparison to other books for this age group
I thought this book was good but not great. Alot of parts where really confusing cause you have no idead whos saying anything or whats happeing.
But anyways the book was about a boy that gor turned into a warewolf and his family was sent to this place called scream street where all the fantasy creatures live. He makes 2 friends a vampire and a mummy.

I really enjoyed this book! And to be quite honest, I'm surprised at how much I liked it! I think it's because it was a good balance of things: it was well written, it was serious yet funny, and the characters had a fun wit about them that often made me smile or chuckle. I'm glad I came across this book and look forward to reading the rest!

This was a super cute book for kids. There were enough pictures that the kids can't complain about there not being pictures, but not nearly enough for it to be a picture book. I love the whole idea of Scream Street! I read it in less than a day, just for an easy read. I am going to pass this along to the kids for a fun summer read.
Amazing book, Tommy's writing style is amazing not too immature but can create suspense and mystery. His charatcers are unique in their same way, and supernatural individually. This book isn't just the predictable scary ghouly story, and yet he makes you think about things you wouldn't think about.
Fast, fun, and way cute!! Now I'm not a fan of spiders, but if they're goanna come clean my house I don't think I'd mind them as much!! :)
My little brother and I really enjoyed this book, it's the perfect book for little boys and girls who love a good scary(but not really scary)book!
I loved the main idea of the story, it was something new and exciting! It's definitely grabbing.. I couldn't stop reading it until it was over! I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series to follow the trio's adventure.

I liked this book very much. I think this book is good for people that like haunted books. I liked it because I liked that they were trying to find a fang. Its awesome and a real vampire fang and I liked the ending.
The humour in these books would engage any reluctant reader in my opinion and there are many laughs to be had as an adult reader too - I particularly love the surfer dude zombie ;0) Should be in every school library.
3rd and 4th grade boys. Lots of action, adventure, fantasy, and general grossness to keep childrens interest. Cute pictures and interesting plot. Will be a great series.

I love the books this one is one of my fave if you are reading my comment you should really read the set if you don't you don't know what your missing out on
so very cute! this is a great introduction to the genre for younger readers and works as a gateway to more advanced series such as Oliver Nocturne!
cute childrens book. just the right amount of creepy for a kid.
Pretty good - for the Goosebumps reader who needs a new series.
