In the whimsical and thrilling debut of a new series, “Kevin the Vampire” introduces young readers to an extraordinary world where the fantastical becomes real. Kevin Aurelius, an almost eleven-year-old, isn’t your typical boy. His life is a little more… nocturnal, thanks to his fangs, immortality, and, well, being a vampire.

When Kevin and his vampire family, complete with amusingly bothersome siblings, set off for Monstros City, an unexpected detour lands them in the seemingly mundane town of Lower Drudging. To continue their journey, the family decides to host a carnival, hoping to refill their coffers. However, Lower Drudging harbors a dark and ravenous secret, one that’s been asleep for ages, until now.

The twist? This secret endangers not just the vampires, but the town’s human inhabitants as well. It’s up to Kevin, with his newfound human friend Susie, to confront this ancient, voracious entity. The duo’s bravery, friendship, and quick thinking become Lower Drudging’s only hope for salvation. Can Kevin rise to the occasion and save everyone, or will the town succumb to the shadowy threat?
