Vampire Baby Book Review


I have a really cute book to share with you and it's not really a vampire baby, just a cliché or saying. The name of the book is called Vampire Baby written by Kelly Bennett.
When Tootie gets her first teeth, it’s clear to her big brother that she’s no ordinary baby. But how to convince Mom and Dad?  
It happens overnight: little sister Tootie goes from cuddly, ga-ga-googoo, I-want-my-ba-ba baby...vampire baby. Now she’s sinking her pointy fangs into everything — furniture, toys, and especially her big brother ("Youch, Tootie! No bite!" ).  
Mom insists that it’s just a phase, but Tootie’s brother knows better. Just look at her hairline! Or the fact that all her favorite foods are bloodred! With perfect comic timing, Kelly Bennett and Paul Meisel give a fresh slant to the new-baby story, proving that even monstrous little arrivals have a funny way of staking their siblings’ affections.
The book really isn't about a "real" vampire baby but about one that just has sharp teeth and she likes to bite everything. Her older brother names her that because he is tired of her antics and well, you know how kids are, they just don't care to be shadowed all the time by a younger sibling.

It's actually a really cute story about brothers and sisters and how to get along with each other. It will make you laugh in some places and in others you will feel bad for big brother but in the end, they work it out and all end's well.

It's a great book to show both how to get along with each other in a unique and modern way.
