'a wonderfully exciting and colourful picture book that deserves a place in all school and home libraries. This hardback picture book tells the story of a Vampire who travels around the various sights and well known spots of Dublin. Taking in Trinity College, the River Liffey and Grafton Street to name just a few, this book is specific to the Irish context and allows for children or adults to make connections to the famous landmarks of Dublin. For children, seeing pictures of and hearing the names of famous Dublin landmarks is a sure strong point of this book, however it’s rhyming word patterns throughout mean that even the youngest of children would seek enjoyment from a read-aloud by guessing the sentence endings of the rhyming words. The illustrations are eye-catching with a use of black and colourful patterns pre-dominantly, would serve as a catalyst for many discussions or art lessons’ By Ciara Barry, 2nd Class Teacher, Scoil na Croise Naofa, Mahon, Co.
