AMELIA FANG AND THE BARBARIC BALL – Laura Ellen Anderson

5/5

A stunning young reader book that’s perfect for fans of the not quite ordinary!

I’m not going to lie, I’ve bought the whole of this series without having even read the blurb purely based on the beautiful cover and sprayed edges, and the fact that I love Laura Ellen Anderson’s illustrations. So, I figured that it was about time that I read book one, and luckily I loved it!

In the Amelia Fang series, we follow the title character, a cute little vampire, and her friends in Nocturnia, where all things glittery and unicorn related are terrifying but blood and darkness are not! In book one, we are introduced to a whole host of brilliant characters from Amelia Fang to her pet pumpkin Squashy (he is so adorable!) as their world is turned upside down by the arrival of the spoilt Prince Tangine. However, all is not as it seems…

I adored this first book which really sets the scene for the series and makes you want to find out more. It is a very unique take on the cuteness of young reader books with the focus being on less traditional creatures for this age range. I would definitely recommend it, and can’t wait to move on to book two!
