There’s something strange going on at Washington Irving Elementary School. People are turning into monsters—literally!

In The Vanishing Vampire, Sebastian’s life has become a real pain in the neck. It all started the night he walked home from the movies by himself. He sort of blacked out and the next morning, he woke up as a vampire. Now he has only one chance to turn back into a human. And time is running out….

With its blend of humor and horror, David Lubar’s middle-grade monsteriffic tales series will appeal to the same audience that has made his Weenies short story collections such a success.
