Eddie and the Vegetarian Vampire


August 5, 2022

Book Details

Twelve-year-old Eddie, short, pudgy, hard-of-sight, his nose buried in a book, has no idea how he wound up in the Sisters of Mercy Orphanage as an infant or why he can't be adopted. He gets the shock of his life one evening when the bat in the orphanage basement transforms into a vampire and introduces himself as Count Bloodless. The starving Count is also an orphan, rejected by his vampire family because he is vegetarian. An unexpected friendship blossoms as Eddie helps the Count find the food he desperately needs to survive, and the vampire helps Eddie unlock the secret of his past. Written in the rollicking spirit of Roald Dahl and set in World War II-era Boston, Eddie and the Vegetarian Vampire features a protagonist who will discover that family and belonging are sometimes found in the most unexpected of places.

Author Description
