Appealing to readers of all ages

Appealing to readers of all ages, A Practical Guide to Vampires is an illustrated, fantastic guide to these popular horror-movie monsters. Presenting the basics of vampire lore from anatomy (apparently vampires have withered internal organs and small lungs whose sole purpose is to provide air for speech, since they don't breathe) to basic physical and magical self-defense against vampires, to proper etiquette when invited to a vampire banquet. A delightful treasure trove of ideas, especially recommended not only for vampire fans, but also anyone interested in creating vampire stories, or leading a role playing game involving vampires. Also a joy to page through are previous books in the "Practical Guide" series, including "A Practical Guide to Monsters" and "A Practical Guide to Dragons".

A colorful insight!

Reviewed by Dylan James (age 13) for Reader Views (9/09) Have you ever thought about vampires? What they do? How they act, talk, or live? If you have, read "A Practical Guide to Vampires" by Lisa Trutkoff Trumbauer. You will learn everything about their weaknesses and powers. All the lore about them will help young vampire hunters with their job. When are they weakest? Do they have to drink human's blood? All these questions are answered and more! Read to fulfill your knowledge of one of the world's most mysterious monsters and eventually take on your role as a vampire hunter! Remember to wear your garlic necklace on this exciting adventure! Before anything else, I have to say that the artistry was beautiful. "A Practical Guide to Vampires" was the most artistically pronounced book I have ever reviewed. The pictures go really well with the book. The artist beautifully depicts the actions, movements, words, and skills of a vampire with full-colored pictures. Children can read this book just by the art and guess what the pages say! I expect every monster lover or vampire enthusiast to enjoy this book! If your kid loves monsters like vampires or werewolves, this will be an exciting insight into their habits and life. I would recommend "A Practical Guide to Vampires" by Lisa Trutkoff Trumbauer to anyone who loves monsters or anyone under the age of twelve. This is not a frightening book at all, and it explains vampires in a way children can understand. It is not only for monster lovers though, as I am not a monster enthusiast at all, and I enjoyed learning about these mystical creatures. I would think boys would like this book more than girls, but then again, that remains to be seen.
