5.0 out of 5 stars Fun book on vampires June 27 2010
This is another book in the Practical Guide to... series that is aimed towards the 8-14 age group. The subject of this book is, of course, vampires. The book's contents appear to be a combination of traditional lore (vampire weaknesses and stories), dungeons and dragons (things like magic items and weapons), and modern vampire stories (the idea of "vegetarian" vampires that drink only animal blood). The book is told from the point of view of a vampire hunter, although a pretty sympathetic one at that. The book details the traits of vampires, their habits, their interactions with humans (not always entirely bad), their weaknesses, how to fight them, and related monsters and sub-types of vampires.

In terms of tone, it's presented with enough menace to be interesting, but it's light-hearted enough to suit its target audience (no gory details). This is by no means a book for anyone serious about vampires, but as an interesting book for younger viewers, it's a great buy. The illustrations are good, the content is varied but interesting, and the tone is just right. My only complaint would be that the author tends to enjoy using some pretty obscure and advanced words that younger readers might not recognize. Then again, that just might encourage them to learn the meaning of those words. Overall, a strong recommendation as a fun read.
