This witty picture book from children’s luminary Daniel Pinkwater and Aaron Renier offers an insider’s look that will make you completely abandon everything you thought you knew about vampires!
Welcome to the village of Blinsh, Pinksylvania, famous for the many vampires that call it home. With a caring look at this town not so different from our own, we hope the reader will get to know more about vampires and see that they are not so different from you or I. It is true, a certain amount of biting happens, but a nip on the neck may just be a vampire’s way of saying, “Hello, let’s be friends.”
"By the last page, Blinsh feels like the real happiest place on Earth."Kirkus Reviews —
"Come for the ghoulishness, stay for the literary equivalent of sitting between two expertly silly grown-ups as they devote their considerable talents to making readers giggle."Publishers Weekly —
"Skillfully walks the line between funny and frightening."Horn Book Magazine —
