Joe's father has always dreamed of making a vampire movie so the whole family has come on holiday to help him. The only problem is none of the family makes a convincing vampire, so they advertise. But Count Muesli, who auditions for the role, is perfect - a bit too perfect, because he really is a vampire. He's been cast out of Eyetooth, an ancient vampire community high in the hills for refusing to conform to the ancient ways. For example he's a vegetarian! So he can never return. But when Joe's family are imprisoned by the evil Count Fibula, he and Joe have no choice, they must both brave the dangers and save Joe's family.

Oh, this is fun. Talented Clive Mantle takes us almost over the top in his enthusiastic rendition of this funny, silly, yet heartwarming story about modern vampires. When vegetarian vampire Count Meusli is expelled from Eyetooth, the last vampire refuge, he meets a friendly English family who is filming a homemade comedy about--guess what?--vampires. All is well until evil Count Fibula, intent on returning to the bloodsucking days, kidnaps Meusli's friends. Meusli must rescue them. Frank Rodgers's writing is clever, almost camp; Mantle's narration is just as clever. Never have vampires sounded as bad as Count Fibula or as insouciant as Count Meusli, and rarely have humans sounded as cheerfully normal as the kidnapped English family. In addition, Mantle offers a thoughtfully considered class accent for the family. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
