A scary graphic novel from the undead world, full of monsters, blood and betrayal. Read it if you dare!

Deep under the Earth's crust, near Skull River City, a terrible crime has been committed - the city's supply of blood has been stolen from the blood bank.

Rocky (a werewolf-kid) and Vince (a vampire-kid) decide they must investigate to help save their friend Gretel Ghoul, who suffers from a rare blood disorder. But who could be behind the crime?

    This book has been devoured and loved by my sons and by all of my nephews and nieces from ages 5 to 13. They are eagerly awaiting the next instalment by Andrew Cranna.
    This book will become a classic and is one to keep on every bookshelf to read and re-read.

      This story is about a group of monster children that must go on an adventure to save their blood. Their blood was robbed from their local blood bank and these monsters must retrieve it. This book is thrilling with humourous illustrations along the way.

          Being an adult, I still find the book so entertaining and can't help but laugh out loud when I encounter a good bit with A. Cranna's sense of humour. I'm buying 4 copies for 4 of my nephews.

            A great book for boys and girls alike, bought it for my daughter and she really loved it. There are boy and girl characters in the main cast and I can see that there would be many directions these stories could go, featuring one character with each book. I do hope there's more as we can't wait for another installment! We liked it so much I've bought copies for friends' kids for Christmas.

              Such a great book for young boys! Full of gore and grossness that all boys at that age love! My son was occupied for hours reading this 'page turner'. Apparently a new one is out soon? Will be first in line to purchase!
              Wonderfully written and brilliantly illustrated.
              5 stars!
