There are some pretty weird grown-ups in Bailey City!

There's a new guidance counselor at Bailey Elementary School and he's giving the kids the creeps. No one understands why his skin is so pale, why he hides from the sun, or why his skin is deathly cold to the touch. But Counselor Drake couldn't really be Count Dracula, could he?

During a fight between Eddie, Howie, Melody, Liza and a fourth grade bully, a strange man comes dressed in black, black hair, and pale skin. When the friends go to school, they find out that the man's name is Counselor Drake. But he acts really weird, he stays out of the sun, he has vampire teeth, and his office is always dark. Could he be the famous vampire Count Dracula?
"Dracula Doesn't Drink Lemonade" Has that little bit of spook and that mysterious feeling you get sometimes. You could read

Recommends it for: children starting to read chapter books
This is the 16th book in The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids series by Debbie Dadey, Marcia Thornton Jones and John Steven Gurney. This story centers on a new counselor who likes pink lemonade and sitting in the dark.

We've read several books in this series and our girls like them. We are skipping around the series, but it doesn't seem to matter much. We will certainly read more as we come across them. They are quick, entertaining reads and aren't scary.

The collection of "The adventures of the Bailey School Kids" stories are among my all-time favorite children's books. Witty, mischievous and fun, these short and silly books continue to bring giggles to the young and old. Just as I have enjoyed them as a kid, my own children also love them today. I even catch myself re-reading them (alone) from time to time. What can I say? I guess I'll always be a BSK kid at heart.

The Bailey School Kids is a best-selling children's book series by Marcia Thornton Jones and Debbie Dadey. Its main characters are a group of four children (Eddie, Howie, Liza, Melody) who suspect some persons in the stories are popular folk lore or fairy tale characters. They are appealing because they mix a familiar story in with this group of kids. Mid-grammar school

Just plain silliness for the kids. And the vampire (not quite proven to be such) in this story does drink Pink Lemonade with great relish. If I can convince my niece to pick up more, I'll be reading them with her.

A silly series that creates more questions than it answers. It's great for formulating theories as well as predictions. The class dynamics should be very familiar to those of the Magic School Bus generation.

The school gets an eccentric new counselor. Naturally, he looks like Dracula and has cold hands. The kids observe him creeping into Mrs. Jeepers’ basement, and the day after that he leaves the school.

Fun, quick and mysterious.

I have to admit that I haven't read these books since I was in middle school, so my opinion of what makes a book good has probably changed quite drastically. These books were so fun when I was a kid though. I will be buying them for my kids when they get a little older.

Is the new school counselor really dracula? He's so pale, and drinks lots of pink lemonade, will he turn the whole school into vampires?
