Publishers Weekly Review of A VAMPIRE IS COMING TO DINNER!

A Vampire Is Coming to Dinner! 10 Rules to Follow
Pamela Jane, illus. by Pedro Rodriguez, Price Stern Sloan, $7.99 (16p) ISBN 978-0-8431-9964-2
After a Nosferatu-like vampire announces an unexpected visit to a boy's house...what follows is a list of rules... which appear on flaps within antique golden picture frames. Kids will delight in lifting each flap to reveal retro-styled spreads in which the boy outwits the vampire at every turn--welcoming him with spotlights, candles, and lamps ("Make sure all the lights are off") ...the book is a ghoulishly good time. Ages 3–up. (Aug.)
