Straighten your cape and sharpen your claws . . . being a vampire is harder than it looks! The spookiest story you'll read this year from Alex Foulkes, illustrated by Sara Ogilvie.

'A wickedly fun debut, with a wonderfully strong girl hero' Cressida Cowell, Children's Laureate

There are highs and lows to being a vampire. On one claw, you get cool powers like beastly strength and hypnotism and the ability to GRIMWALK. On the other claw, however, vampires are bound by the Vampiric Laws: rules to protect the balance between the worlds of the Living and the Undead. And unfortunately, 11-year-old Leo has just forgotten rule number one . . . The Rules for Vampires don't tell you what to do when you make a ghostly enemy, or accidentally restart an ancient war. But Leo and her very unusual family are more than up to the job.

A monstrously funny and devilishly dark new adventure from debut talent Alex Foulkes, illustrated throughout by the award-winning Sara Ogilvie, Rules for Vampires is the series that fans of Lemony Snickett and Skulduggery Pleasant will devour for breakfast.

*A spooky sequel to Rules for Vampires will BITE BACK soon - coming this Autumn*

Praise for Rules for Vampires :

'Fans of fast-paced, well-written gothic romps will devour Rules for Vampires ' Phil Earle, bestselling author of When the Sky Falls

'Deliciously dark, fangtastically feisty and gloriously gothic!' Laura Ellen Anderson, author of Amelia Fang

'Brilliant! It's a deadly funny, twisty, gothic romp with the loveliest vampire. Sara Ogilvie's illustrations are the perfect match' Jenny McLachlan, bestselling author of Land of Roar

'Wonderfully atmospheric, humorous and touching' Radiya Hafiza, author of Rumaysa
