A delightful, whimsical, JAM-tastic adventure!

The jam has been sucked out of Sam's doughnuts! Who are the culprits? Sam sets a trap to catch the jam thieves and gets a surprise! It's the Jampires: friendly little creatures whose love of jam and sweet things gets them into trouble! They fly off with Sam to their magical land sitting in the clouds, where doughnuts grow on trees, jam tarts sprout like flowers, and castles are made of jammy sponge cake.

Praise For Jampires

Praise for Jampires:

"With rounded shapes, soft colors and pops of jam-bright red, O'Connell's art works delightfully with McIntyre's supple rhymes to spread a silly, sweetly escapist mood." --The New York Times/Sunday Book Review

"A satisfying concept, friendly, Sendak-inspired colored-pencil-and-pastel illustrations, cartoonish attractiveness, and plain old wackiness make this sweet story a winner." --Kirkus Reviews

"Galloping verse and cartoons dusted with humor and magic add up to a light, dessert-themed mystery that's both silly and sweet." --Publishers Weekly
