The Pire’s new neighbours have revolting habits – they stay up ALL DAY, lock themselves in at night and actually take SUN BATHS!. What’s a nice vampire family to do? Read by comedian Bill Bailey.
Listen to an audio clip
A long red curtain has been pulled back from the window to reveal the object of their horror"¦.. a blonde girl sniffing a flower. Hmmm that doesn't seem that frightening!
Turn over the front cover.
On the right is your first 'feely' picture of the vampire mother and father. Start at the top of the page, near the middle, and explore the man. Can you find his spiky black hair? He's facing to the right so explore his white face with its small eye, nose and mouth.
If you trace your fingers right from his mouth you'll feel lots of thin lines and some dots. (Pause) This is red liquid which he's spitting out across the page. He obviously doesn't like it much!
