Vampire Baby Blog Tour- Review & Giveaway

Hi everyone! Today I have a stop on the Vampire Baby blog tour. There is a review of this book and a giveaway for you all.

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.

My Review
Tootie starts out like a normal cuddly baby. When her first teeth come in they have her brother convinced she is a vampire baby. He just have to convince their parents her love of biting and the fangs all point to her being a vampire baby.

When I received this book for review it took hours for me to get to read it. Why you may ask? Because my three year old took it and looked at it for hours. Every time I would try to get it from her or try to read it to her she would throw a fit. So it was a good sign she liked the illustrations. When I finally got to read it I fell in love myself. It is such a charming story. Loving paranormal things, childrens books and wonderful pictures to follow just made this book so much better to me. I read the book with my three year old that night and found she could remember each word and sometimes acted out the scenes. For a little boy convinced his sister is a vampire every sign points to the fact she is one. I love how he tried to fix the problem of a vampire baby and when Tootie was in trouble he jumped to her defense. Showing while sibling trouble is something that is common so is taking up for your sibling. Another thing is I already said the illustrations are great but little things through the book make them so much better. Like the pictures in the newspaper the dad is reading. I really enjoyed those little touches. This book has become a nightly read for my child and she has to read it along with me. She calls it the Tootie book. So hands down this is a big winner with both child and parent.

5 out of 5 Stars


Kelly Bennett writes books for children, both fiction and non-fiction, mostly picture books. She creates stories that celebrate imagination, families, friends, pets… all that goes into being a kid. Stories such as Not Norman: A Goldfish Story, inspired by her own funny goldfish; stories about families, including Dad and Pop, Your Daddy Was Just Like You, and Your Mommy Was Just Like You (called “perfect for intergenerational lap sharing” by School Library Journal); stories about kids being kids—whooping, twirling, cutting up, adventuring, playing around—such as Dance, Y’all, Dance; and brand new and shining, hot-off-the-press picture book One Day I Went Rambling.



I would like to thank Kelly Bennett,Paul Meisel and Book Nerd Tours for letting me a part of this tour.
