Garlic and crosses are useless against Adam. Sunlight has been shown to be at least moderately effective. A silver bullet does the trick. Pretty much any bullet, really.

Savor every page! It is difficult to think of another picture book that works on so many levels and is FUNNY! And with humor that appeals to big kids and little kids and parents. Even the "humor-free" acknowledgment page is worth a read.
Big accomplishment - get this one.
My nieces weren't so into the artwork, but they liked the dialog a lot. Thought it was hilarious. All that's left is the plot... which, okay, is a bit thin (girl goes to the zoo, gets co-opted into picking up groceries for zoo animals, does so), but so be it. Can't have everything.
