Rating: 4 out of 5.

Giracula is a charming and beautifully illustrated storybook for children, telling the tale of a zoo giraffe who gets bitten by a vampire bat.  Fortunately, he develops a thirst for cakes and sweets rather than the traditional vampire fare, so remains in the ‘suitable for small children’ category.  The rhyming is a little iffy here and there, but it doesn’t detract from the story, and the drawings of the confused-looking giraffe with his little fangs and vampire cape are adorable.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
