Editorial Reviews


"I love Gibbus and I love his anti-biting message.  What a great way to talk to children about not biting without being preachy!"- ESSENTIAL.
Cindy, Library/Teacher--KISS THE BOOK (May 30, 2011)

"Corace is on familiar ground: she's proved herself to be a virtuoso at portraying unlikely but thoroughly likable offbeat take on the popular culture's vampire obsession."

--Publishers Weekly, June 20, 2011

“All goes down well, coupled with Corace’s deft acrylic, watercolor and pen-and-ink images of Gibbus’ humorous process of figuring things out. Get ready for many year-round requests for this “fangtastic” title.”

--Kirkus, August 1, 2011

“The illustrations, done in pen, ink with watercolor, and acrylic, are clean and crisp…fun art.”

--School Library Journal, September 2011

Leslie Muir captures the heart of this little vampire who is just growing into this fangs. What to eat, what to eat? He wants to bite something, but nothing he tries feels right. Then he spies the neighbor boy, and the neighbor boy's baby sister. She bites, too. There is a really clever twist on language here that if I share it, it will give away the punch line, so I'm not, but it's brilliant.

Jen Corace's illustrations are just adorable. This is a must-have book for your Halloween reading. Buy one for your child's teacher, too, or the school library. It's a great addition to their collections, too! It's "fangtabulous!"
