This witty picture book from children's luminary Daniel Pinkwater and Aaron Renier offers an insider's look that will make you completely abandon everything you thought you knew about vampires! Welcome to the village of Blinsh, Pinksylvania, famous for the many vampires that call it home. With a caring look at this town not so different from our own, we hope the reader will get to know more about vampires and see that they are not so different from you or I. It is true, a certain amount of biting happens, but a nip on the neck may just be a vampire's way of saying, 'Hello, let's be friends.' This story features spooky (but fun!) vampires, and culminates on Halloween night, with tongue-twisting names and playful illustrations throughout. A vampire turns one human, and then the two vampires turn two more humans, and so on-expanding all the way into the millions, and teaching math concepts in a unique way!
