VLAD Midnight Fright by Anna Wilson

Vlad is not looking forward to his vampire cousin, Lupus, coming to stay. Lupus can fly brilliantly, turn into a bat in the blink of an eye, and he has an annoying raven called Claw. He’s supposed to be teaching Vlad how to be a proper vampire, but all Vlad can think about is how to stop Lupus from following him to human school!

Soon, Lupus has all the humans charmed too, and Vlad is in despair. But the school play auditions show who really has talent, and who is the one with true friends. Vlad is in for a surprise…
