Description of this Book

NEW from the bestselling illustrator of UNI THE UNICORN! A new mythical -- and totally rad -- character to laugh with and love. Vlad is always getting in trouble at Miss Fussbucket's School for Aspiring Spooks. Unlike the other little vampires, witches, mummies, and ghosts, Vlad isn't very interested in learning spookiness. That's because . . .Vlad loves to skateboard! How can he possibly think about being a good spook when all he wants to do is practice his latest gnarly trick? Maybe Vlad can find a way to do both! Brigette Barrager's debut author-illustrator project is full of energy, fun, and sweet tricks! Passionate kids will identify with Vlad, and will take heart in the way he marries his love of skateboarding with his schoolwork. A perfect Halloween read-aloud for the classroom!

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Moldy green with highlights of red and the hot pink of Vlad's skateboard pop against the more sedate backgrounds of the extremely staid school and pages of negative space. Readers will enjoy the prim-and-proper uniform-clad child monsters.Would that every student could find a way to combine what they love with their schoolwork. --Kirkus Reviews
