Meet Vampirina, an adorable vampire who just happens to dance through life one plié at a time! Yes, even little girl vampires dream of becoming ballerinas. Vampirina is sweet and girly yet fearless and fun. Vamperina and her friends remind me of a blend of the classic TV family, the Munsters along with the Disney character, Princess Sofia. Its both gothic and girly. Author, Anne Marie Pace has created a fun and playful character with Vampirina and manages to tell a fun and upbeat story about characters that are often viewed as gloomy or unfriendly in her new book, Vampirina at the Beach. Who knew vampires and werewolves could have so much fun!? My very own extremely girly girl loves this book and her big brothers enjoy it as well. The book itself is an easy read but combined with the illustrations by Leuyen Pham, my kids ranging from ages 3 to 8 are all extremely engaged with Vampirina at the Beach. In fact, my kids spend several minutes exploring each page every time we read this book.
My daughter is already requesting more Vampirina books. Thankfully there are more Vampirina adventures to be read in books as well as more to come on Disney Junior. Be on the lookout for the premiere of the “Vampirina” TV series coming to Disney Junior in 2017!
Vampirina at the Beach is on sale now! The beachy theme is perfect for summer and this dancing vampire and her goulish friends are equally festive for fall.
I received a copy of Vampirina at the Beach for review purposes. All opinions are mine alone.
