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

Also eigentlich war Luke einmal ein normaler Junge - zumindest bis er sich letztes Jahr in einen Werwolf verwandelt hat. Seither passiert das immer, wenn er wütend ist. Und als er bei einem seiner Wutanfälle beinahe einen Hund abmurkst, reicht das - man verfrachtet seine Eltern und ihn kurzerhand in die Scream Street. Dort fällt Luke überhaupt nicht mehr auf. Seine neuen Freunde sind ein Vampir und eine

My 4th grade students LOVE this series. It's suspenseful, entertaining, and at times funny. Many in my class cheered when I said I'd ordered another three in the series (making it nine and I'll be ordering the rest).

It has a super concept--a street where all the houses are haunted, but Donbavand's strength isn't creating new creatures. Instead, he's good at putting a fresh spin on the old standards--vampires, werewolves, mummies, zombies, witches, etc.

I wish the chapters weren't so long--it kin

This creepy, action-packed series will likely be popular with the elementary crowd. Luke and his familly learned that he was a werewolf at his last birthday. When he transforms and attacks a school bully, his family is relocated by the GHOUL movers to Scream Street where supernatural creatures are kept by the government. The government must not care what happens there, and it is an entirely different world with evil Otto Sneer in charge. Luke is intent on finding a way to get his normal parents ...more

Luke Watson is your average pre-teen kid. Well, with the exception of the werewolf thing, which he can't control and only happens when he's really angry. But after one of his lapses almost gets a fellow classmate injured, the Government Housing of Unusual Lifeforms (G.H.O.U.L.) is forced to step in, and before they know it Luke and his parents wake up the newest residents of Scream Street - a gaslit, always-nighttime community of zombies, monsters and creatures of the night ruled over by the dic ...more

I like werewolves and vampires, but it's so hard to find books about them that don't revolve around sex. My best bet is usually in the juvenile literature section. That usually means I have to put up with some cheesy dialogue or goofy ways of describing things, but it's far better than the alternative.

I liked this. I like the idea that the government sends supernatural people off to some mysterious city to get them away from normal people (I mean, I wouldn't like it in the real world, but as a p

I had seen episodes 1, 2, 3, 12 & 13 of CBBC's 'Scream Street' before reading this book. I absolutely fell in love with the show and have re-watched all the episodes currently available on iPlayer many times. When I found out the TV show is based on this book series I knew I had to get my hands on this as soon as possible. All my expectations of this book came from the TV show so I really don't know what it would be like if you hadn't seen the show but I think I still would have really enjoy ...more

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

خیلی حس بدی دارم که دارم دو میدم :|
همین دو هم فقط برای موضوع کلی داستان بود
کتاب جالبی بود ولی فکر کنم من زیادی بزرگ بودم برای این کتاب
درواقع کسی هستم که تو این سن کتابایی که برای کوچیکتر از خودم هستنو میخونم ولی خب با این کتاب خوب ارتباط برقرار نکردم
به نظر من خیلی چیزا زود اتفاق افتادن. خبری از توصیف و اینا نبود. و گفت و گو ها هم خودمونی بودن چیزی که من موقع کتاب خوندن زیاد بهش عادت ندارم و البته برای این کتاب یه جوری بودن

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

" مادر لوک تلاش کرد بازوی او را بگیرد و نگذارد برود: «لوک، نه!» اما نتوانست و لوک توی هال بود.
نیمرخ سیاه رنگ سه نفر از پشت شیشه های در اصلی خانه که با شبنم منجمد پوشیده شده بود، دیده میشد. لوک با احتیاط جلو رفت، دستهی برنجی در را چرخاند و کمی آن را باز کرد. هوای سرد بیرون به داخل هجوم آورد.
صدای غرش مانندی گفت: «به خیابان وحشت خوش آمدید!»
لوک به سختی آب دهانش را قورت داد. جلوی در خانه چند خونآشام ایستاده بودند. "

This was another book I was asked to read by the bf's neice. And I was actually hooked from the first page. It had the same feel to the Darren Shan books I read when I was in my teens and a cross over of The Morgaville Vampires but obviously for young children instead with more than just vampires but other supernatual beings. I quite liked tis book, it's a really great book for children. I'm actually going to read some of the other books too.

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 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.

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.

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!

Ashton-The main character is Luke Walston. He is a werewolf. His family and him got deported by G.O.U.L and now live on Scream Street. But his family does not belong there and him and his friends have to collect facts from the founding fathers together.
It is funny, thriller, action, witchcraft, scary, action and adventure.
Jess - The Tales Compendium
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

A very cute read about three young people that are joining up to complete a scavenger hunt to help one boy move his family out of town. Oh, and the kids are a warewolf, vampire, and mummy. A fun little twist on the monster theme!

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.
yaBOOKS:
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.

This was the first book I ever loved. Read it when I was about nine and it kickstarted my own creativity! I love the humour mixed with mild horror. I was VERY picky with books - and still am - and to this day I find this book astounding.

I really like this book. My favorite part was when Luke finally met Resus. Then stuff started flying off of Resus's desk.
I also really like how Tommy Donbavand described stuff in this book. It also like the dialogue.

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.
