The Sleepless Little Vampire

Even creatures of the night can find it hard to sleep!

Written by Richard Egielski

Little Vampire is very cute. I think that the younger kids will like this story about a little vampire that discovers that he can’t sleep at night because he sleeps during the day with all of the other night creatures. I think that this will be popular all year, not just at Halloween.

Even creatures of the night can find it hard to sleep!
What could possibly be keeping a little vampire up tonight? Is it the growling of werewolves? Is it the cackling of witches? Is it the rattling of skeletons? No! It’s that all scary creatures sleep during the DAY, silly!

This gentle, read-aloud romp gathers all the favorite fall frighties together for a book that’s a year-round pleasure. See for yourself how Egielski masterfully lets the pictures grow and the pace build until the moment Little Vampire (empowered!) takes control.

Beautiful. Funny. A tiny bit scary. This one’s a sure bet with Little Vampires everywhere.

  1. Everyone has had a hard time going to sleep. Young students will probably relate to this vampire and it’s a fun Halloween theme. Everyone looks for those types of titles year round.
