Books And Authors Who Coloured My Childhood – Part 5 – Ann Jungman

Vlad The Drac.

Have you heard of Vlad The Drac?

I was amazed to find out that not many people had! I read and reread these books as I really enjoyed them!

Ann Jungman wrote a series of books about Vlad the Drac, a vegetarian vampire who manages to come home with two English children after a holiday they went on in Romania!  I only ever read 3 of them, in a lovely set which my Mum had got for me, but now, with the advent of the internet, and search engines, I find there were 6 books! (My fingers itch to find them on ebay or amazon, but I am trying to be good, I am running out of space on the bookshelves! Actually there is no space, the floor in front of the kids bookshelf is now getting covered with books too!)

Again, I managed to retain my original books, thanks to my Mum, who’s hoarding habit can be a really good thing sometimes!

And I read these to the kids too, who loved them.  Lil Man has just finished reading all three himself, and actually dressed up as Vlad at World Book Day!

Hands up anyone else who has heard of Vlad the Drac?!

    Cool! It puts a child friendly spin on the vampire. BTW, I’ve nominated your blog for this:
