Vampire Baby!: A Hazy Dell Flap Book


★ 2024 Independent Publisher Book Award Winner (Best Interactive Book)

“Persico brings her characteristic whimsical, detailed illustrations to this Halloween-themed read: a muted palette accented by vibrant reds and oranges brings Barks’s story to life. A cute, not too scary, addition to library Halloween collections. Recommended.”

—School Library Journal 

It's Halloween night and you're invited to join Vampire Baby in the candlelit halls of a not-so-spooky haunted castle! Vampire Baby! is a lift-a-flap book crawling with Gothic Halloween imagery and creeping with classic Halloween creatures, including a mummy, Frankenstein's Monster, a ghost, and a gargoyle.

Young readers and pre-readers will discover the details of this nonthreatening Halloween castle alongside their Vampire Baby friend with durable, interactive flaps on every spread revealing fun characters and surprises.
