A paper on a book about a vampire boy

I have enjoyed three books in the series, each with the kind of zany plot that will appeal to young readers, and each also totally child-centric. In Trouble with Magic, nine-year-old Veena is determined to help her herbalist Aunt Malu invent something wonderful that will make her name and fortune.

I can even say, it gets dramatic and dull sometimes. This makes the series ideal reading for children in India and the Indian diaspora; for young readers outside India they offer a reading experience that will broaden horizons without force-feeding cultural awareness, because in essence the stories will capture their imaginations and make them laugh.

Overall, this is a fine tale, I just wish, the author developed each plot points more because really, every part of this story and each character has so much potential. It's so mysterious, intriguing and atmospheric, written in a way I felt I was in for a good tale.

name that book

It is a bonus for children everywhere that their Indian setting is a given through their being written, illustrated and published in India.

Did the romance a part of this story at all?

I don't hate him but I don't like him enough. Shelves: fantasyyoung-adultretellingsarcsreads The first chapter really set the mood of the entire novel. That would be a great tale. When it comes to the characters, Charlie, our main character isn't that likeable.

The hole is also often incorporated into the black-and-white illustrations that are scattered throughout the books. But instead, we get even more of the Queen of Hearts who is one stupid, confused character.

The vampire boy

It was a good tale, though there are parts of the story where the storytelling loses the mood and tone that the beginning promised. There are currently nine books in the series, and the good news for readers outside India is that they are also readily available as e-books, although I would recommend the physical book where possible because, as well as being attractively presented with shiny dots superimposed on the cover, there is that hole! I don't hate h The first chapter really set the mood of the entire novel. I love this story for the real bravery it encapsulates it is unthinkable that Maya herself might consider herself lost — logically, how can she be when she knows exactly where she is and because it is so empowering for young children.

It is a bonus for children everywhere that their Indian setting is a given through their being written, illustrated and published in India. It is a silly story and kids will enjoy it, but it has an underlying message that kids will hopefully take away with them — of tolerance, celebrating difference rather than being suspicious of it, and enrichment through being open to new friendships. But unfortunately this book is more focused on Charlie and the deal Vincent made with the 'twins' to keep Charlie alive.

He's a bit meh for my taste.
