Even creatures of the night can find it hard to sleep!

What could possibly be keeping a little vampire up tonight? Is it the growling of werewolves? Is it the cackling of witches? Is it the rattling of skeletons? No! It's that all scary creatures sleep during the DAY, silly!
This gentle, read-aloud romp gathers all the favorite fall frighties together for a book that's a year-round pleasure. See for yourself how Egielski masterfully lets the pictures grow and the pace build until the moment Little Vampire (empowered!) takes control.
Beautiful. Funny. A tiny bit scary. This one's a sure bet with Little Vampires everywhere.
