Ralph is (not) a vampire
By Corinne V Davies
Category Humour 5-9 year olds
Ralph is a quiet, studious boy and he’s definitely not a Vampire. The fact that he turned up at his sister’s fancy dress party dressed as one (when it wasn’t even fancy dress) … no, that was just luck. Well, ok, that and the fact he’s allergic to garlic, wears only black, has no reflection, keeps bats in his loft, sleeps in open graves and tames werewolves, oh and even appears to drink blood. Yes, I’m afraid that’s all just bad luck too… or is it?

My nine year old son devoured this book in an evening and told all his friends how cool it was. Looking forward to the next one!
Love this book. One I will keep forever.
I want to read this most cute book for my future children. The illustration is very lovely too!
The illustrations are so wonderful - and a story you can really get your (vampire) teeth into! I loved it.
Loved it: Why is his sister's friend scarier than a 400 year old vampire? :)
This is a sweet and funny story, with great illustrations. Ralph is a really appealing character, and the situations he finds himself in are consistently hilarious!
My boys didn't put it down! Gorgeous illustration too!
A great sequel to Ralph is (not) a superhero. Very funny, great writing.
The illustration is wonderful!
This is a seriously funny book. Very highly recommended!
