Okay, as much as I hate change, I've got to admit that the apprehensive look on Cody's face is pretty good on the new cover (far left). The spooky house is good, too, as is the blood red font. Since the book is humorous but not silly, the non-cartoon cover is a little better than the original, which I do still like.
Thank you very much to Douglas Rees for sending me a copy. The secretary and principal at my school had to fight over who got to read it first. Mr. Rees is hard at work on the sequel to this book, and we can't wait.
(According to Mr. Rees' web site http://otterlimits.org/doug/books.html, Vampire Pride will be finished by the end of the year! Publication will be a bit longer, I'm sure.)
3/16/2009-- Mr. Reese said recently that there have been a few snags, so no publication date yet, I'm afraid!
