The much-loved children’s author and illustrator J.otto Seibold, creator of Olive, the Other Reindeer, has done it again! His newest book, Vunce Upon a Time, is a great book for Halloween or anyone who loves vampires (like me!). In Vunce Upon a Time, the main character Dagmar is not like other vampires. He’s shy,he’s afraid of humans, and he’s a vegetarian! But even more thanhe likes vegetables, Dagmar loves candy. And when he hears about allthe treats he can get on Halloween, he knows he has to be brave andventure out into the human world.

You can also download Vunce Upon a Time activities at the Chronicle Books website such as Turn Into a Vampire in 6 Easy Steps (carrot optional)!

You sure “Dagmar” is a “he” as Dagmar ist a female first name in German? Is it used as a boys’ name in English? The story sounds rather cute anyway!
