Count Dracula's fame has spread far and wide. But, alas, he has no friends! Perhaps a party will solve his problem. From disco werewolves to zany zombies, a wild collection of crazy creatures descend upon Count Drac's castle for a party like no other. Debut author-artist Adam Lane has created a fiendishly clever book that will appeal to children and grown-ups alike. The silly text pairs wonderfully with the sensational three-dimensional illustrations. Fun to read aloud and filled with humor, it all adds up to a monstrously good time.
Adam Lane was born in London, grew up in Pittsburgh and schooled at Harvard and The California Institute Of The Arts. As a child he was afraid of monsters and hid under the covers at bedtime. Now that he's grown-up the monsters don't trouble him, but he's still happiest with blankets pulled over his head.
"Debut author Lane composes bouncy, comical rhymes and makes puns; his carefully molded figures, offset by midnight-black backgrounds, show an attention to detail often lacking in holiday fare." -Publishers Weekly
