Halloween is by far the best holiday for picture books. In honor of that, I'm going to try to review a couple of my favorites in the next few days. I wanted to start off with a title from last year: The Sleepless Little Vampire by Richard Egielski. It's a delightful picture book that's the perfect Halloween bedtime read for the littlest of monsters.
A little vampire is all ready for bed, tucked beneath his skeleton blanket and snuggling with his Frankenstein's monster doll. The only problem is he can't fall asleep. So the little guy spends the rest of the story trying to figure out what's keeping him up. Is it the howling werewolf? Or maybe the dancing skeletons?
