dickandjaneandvampiresI picked up this ironic treasure at a used bookstore in Pueblo, Colo. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter taken too far?

The creeping menace implied by the incongruous presence of a stolid, purple vampire among frolicking children is really unsettling, but there’s a happy ending. It’s almost as if this book is a prequel to the tragic tale of Count Dracula and his doomed wife in Hotel Transylvania
