Praise for HAMPIRE!: "Kids will feast on this deliciously scary tale over and over. "--Kirkus Reviews
Praise for HAMPIRE!: "Fine's paintings exaggerate the animals' terror to comic effect (funniest is the pony cowering in the corner), and his canted angles give this just the right absurdist tone."--ALA Booklist
Praise for HAMPIRE!: "Building suspense and a sense of nocturnal dread, Bardhan-Quallen's (The Hog Prince) rhymes are filled with puns ('"We're sitting ducks," the duck announced'), and the antics of the frantic duck and the animals he rouses should have readers laughing."--Publishers Weekly
"The deft, engaging verse interspersed with pirate lingo is complemented neatly by McElmurry's precise and detailed illustrations .... A winning combination of smart and silly, this yarn will make a welcome addition to princess and pirate storytimes, as well as a good choice for one-on-one sharing."--Kirkus Reviews
