Dill and our hero Peter find adventures and is some circumstances adventures find them. I loved this book. It was creepy, mysterious and laugh out loud funny. I enjoyed Peter but his buddy Dill was hands down my favorite. When Dill gets scared he "maybe" pees his pants, "just a little" and while most of us would keep that tidbit to ourselves, Dill always tells Peter. The exchanges that follow that are hilarious!
I was very curious about the grandfather. He has his own story that unfolds slowly and made me read as fast as I could and turn the pages so I could find out. Dill is scared to death of grandfather and grandfather is none to fond of him either since there was an incident with Dill blowing up some watermelons in the grandfather's garden. The interaction between those two is a lot of fun.
My favorite part of the book besides Dill was the vampire schoolgirl with a crush on Peter. I felt sorry for her at times and wanted to kick her butt at other times. There was nothing funny about her to Peter who had to fend her off but since he's such a nice guy really didn't want to hurt her. Good thing he has back-up in Dill and grandfather!
This is a Young Adult book but trust me, adults will enjoy it just as much, maybe even more. Normally I don't read or enjoy YA but I devoured this and want more! Highly recommended.

Peter and the Vampires by Darren Pillsbury is the first book in this series that features young, Peter. This series is geared towards younger readers but even teens and adults can get into this series. Warning as you will fall for Peter and Dill. What I liked is that some series that are written for younger readers are written at a level that is sometimes dumbed down. The part that I liked the most was that Peter and Dill acted their ages. The vampires were scary but not gory. This book is a quick read for a full length novel. This book ends on a cliff hanger moment. If you want to know what happens next, than you will have to check out Peter and the Werewolves.
This is a perfect book for those kids who really can't interested in anything. It has adventure and humor and an annoying younger sister that will make any kid glad to have the siblings they do. While it might be a bit longer than a 10 year old may want to read, the story is engaging and memorable. It is impossible not to like Peter, find his sister annoying, want to know more about what goes on with his Grandfather, and to laugh at Dill. I read each section of the book as a short story of its own and had no trouble remembering the earlier adventures. Peter's life in Duskerville is anything but quiet during his first few weeks, but Peter is a quiet hero who gets the job done, even if it is a messy and gross job.

Fun for kids who like scary tales like Goosebumps. More character development than Goosebumps, which makes it readable for adults. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Mary Louise Jones

A nice teenage book, with angst and some panic, but the characters are not very well developed and the scenarios are not set up very well in my opinion. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Gary R. Casebeer Ma. Ed. Ma. Comm.

These were very good 10-13 year old stories. The first was a little slow to start, but I think they went much more smoothly after that. I'm going to pick up the other 5. Read morePublished 9 months ago by TheRaggedEdge OfNebraska
