Vampire School: Casketball Capers by Peter Bently and Chris Harrison

Lee Price really likes going to St. Orlok's Academy, because that's where they teach him all about being a vampire. Recently they've been learning how to turn into bats. It takes a bit of work, but Lee is starting to get the hang of it. There's also a big casketball game coming up against the Chaney Street Werewolves, but once the game starts it looks like not everyone is playing fairly. Can Lee come up with a plan before it's too late?

Vampire School looks like it's going to be a fun series that has appeal for both boys and girls. This first book combines the supernatural with sports, friendship, and (spoiler alert) fair play triumphing over cheaters. I knew I would enjoy it from the opening 'montage' of pictures that show Lee practicing being a vampire: fang flossing, bow tie tying, cloak swishing, and, my favourite, scary staring. I look forward to seeing more books in this series.

I read an advance review copy from NetGalley.
