Product Description

Product Description

Luke Thorpe is a fifteen-year-old wimp. Excellent at maths and terrible at sport, he'd rather keep his head down and get on with his schoolwork. Yet, mysterious and uncontrollable changes in his behaviour and appearance - patches of hair growing rapidly, howling rather than singing the hymns in assembly, sudden growth spurts causing his clothes to rip off - are threatening to rocket him out of obscurity. Join Luke on a journey of discovery, embarrassing mishaps and hilarity as he gets to the bottom of his werewolf roots, joins a pack, and finds himself en route to war against the vampires (whose number include a rather wimpy, but familiar face) ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Funny - Buy it now! 2 Jan 2012
By krg
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I haven't read any of the Wimpy Vampire stories but love this type of parody book, so for 99p, I figured it was worth a shot. I am a mum of children the age that this is aimed at but I found it very funny, there are some very good laugh out loud moments in the book.
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jolly good fun 16 July 2012
By Steven R. McEvoy TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This is the second book by Tim Collins I have read. In many ways I enjoyed it even more than the first. The humor is very British, the wit cutting and the delivery near perfect. Collins delivers a hilarious book and a wonderfully cynical look at the mythology of the Vampire vs. Werewolf antagonism. Combine that with a few clan members of each species trying to form a commune-like peace movement to stop the impending battle that will launch a worldwide war is nothing but nonstop fun. This book will have you laughing out loud.

The story revolves around Luke Thorpe, a 15-year-old goody-two shoes, a school monitor, a student who excels, and plans his study prep weeks and months in advance. He has his next few years planned out, blazing a trail of academic excellence towards the goal of a career in politics. But soon strange changes start overtaking him, and not the normal kind that a 15-year-old boy goes through. From his body growing and shrinking beyond his control, he becomes much hairier, and he has a strength, speed and stamina previously unknown to him. At first he believes he has rabies from a dog bite, but soon he discovers the truth and as he struggles to uncover his werewolf roots, he meets a girl, joins a pack, and finds himself chosen to be a main character in a war between vampires and the pack. You will also see a familiar wimpy Vampire.

This book was a very fun read. I highly recommend it. It is strong enough to stand alone but the humor only snowballs as you read the other books in the series in conjunction. So give it a try and rink up the fun! Cheers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book! 25 Dec 2011
By Alex S
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read Diary of a Wimpy Vampire: The Undead Have Feelings Too and Prince of Dorkness: Diary of a Wimpy Vampire, I decided to buy this book. And I don't regret it. It's very similar to the other books, which are great, and some of the characters from the other books are actually in this book. It's brilliant!

A must buy!

Funny, exciting, my mum brought me this book and I loved it! I read the vampire books and I couldn't wait until this one came out. I also loved how he joined the two books together - characters overlap from one to another. I love It!!!!!! Ben age 10
