I was not sure what to expect by this book so I opened it with an open mind. I was hooked by page 2! Peter and the Vampires is truly a delightful book with lovable young boys as our main characters. Add to that a creepy grandfather, a huge house where strange things happen and a two year old little sister who wears a bathing suit every day OVER her clothes!

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.

My mom received a complimentary copy of this book to read and review and she asked me if I would like to do it for her. I really was not interested in reading it because I thought it was for preteens. When I didn't have anything else to read, I decided to give it a try. I didn't really expect it to be as good as it was. Nine and a half year old Peter, his mom, and two year old sister, Beth, have to move in with their mom's dad because she lost her job. To make the situation worse is the creepy grandfather. Even Beth finds him scary/creepy. Peter and his neighbor, Dill, get into a LOT of trouble in this book. In the first story, they have thirteen dead men trying to kill them and luckily Peter's grandfather helps them find a way to re-kill them. In the second story, a girl that has a HUGE crush on Peter turns into a vampire and starts trying to find a way to get Peter to let her bite him. In the third story, Beth gets exchanged for a changeling (faerie or troll baby) and Peter and Dill have to find a way to get Beth back without having to go into faerie world. The last story, fourth, is about a swamp monster that attacks two boys and Peter and Dill try to find a way to rescue them before the swamp monster eats them. Over-all it was a REALLY good book, but I would advice parents to not let kids under the age of thirteen read this book because there is some profanity and there are some "scary" situations. I think that this would be a good story for even adults to read.

Great start to a great series. As an adult I really enjoy reading these books, even with the young protagonist. Definitely recommend buying and reading, and sharing with a friend.

Peter Normal, his sister, Beth and their mom are moving. Peter's mom lost her job. They move in with Peter's grandfather. Peter's grandfather is crazy and there is nothing to do here. His grandfather owns no television and makes him go to bed early. Luckily for Peter, he meets Dill. Peter's grandfather warns Peter not to go into the garden. There is a reason for it. It is late at night and Dill and Peter go wandering down in to the garden. They can not help themselves. They are ten year old boys. There they meet something that scares the wits out of them. Now they know why Peter's grandfather warned Peter not to go into the garden. It is not long after that Peter and Dill start noticing strange things happening in town and to some of the people.

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.

I received this book for free from BookRooster for a review.

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.
