The Vampire Plagues, Book 1, (London, 1850) is a truly unique book. Sebastian Rook takes the vampire stereotype and twists it...even more! 
    Jack, a common street urchin, lets his curiosity get the better of him when he boards the mysterious 'ghost' ship. Jack meets Ben, a traumatized rich kid whom Jack found on board the ship. Ben tells this crazy story of killer vampires. Impossible, right? Anyway, the unlikely pair become friends. Can they stop the Vampire Plague in time and protect the heart of England? 
    This is a definite must-read! I give it 5 out of 5 stars and give it to ages 6 and up if they can physically read it.
