Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-In Gulp, when the delivery bat arrives with a baby vampire complete with pointy teeth and a "lovely green complexion," his mother is proud of his aggressive growth while Daddy Vampire struggles to keep his kid equipped with food and stuffed animals, which are exuberantly dismembered. This book goes over the top in its efforts to be daring. Warm mouse blood as a food is distasteful, even if it is meant for a vampire. And readers will be hard-pressed to identify with Daddy Vampire's parental angst. The pictures have a disjointed, cubist combination of line and offbeat coloration to establish an alien monster country. It is certainly dynamic, heavily influenced by its many shades of putrid lime green. In Yuck, a chubby, pink-cheeked child arrives on delivery day instead of a baby witch. While the mother frets over her baby's human tendencies, the father does all of the loving. This is the more successful of the two titles. The sly humor created as a result of the juxtaposition of two disparate worlds is accessible to youngsters. The art has rounded forms, reminiscent of circus balloons, to create the laughable, goofball characters. In both titles, each renegade baby proves itself at the annual birthday bash. While the premise of these stories will appeal to youngsters, overall they fail to deliver.
