The book I want to know about is an early-to-mid-90’s R.L. Stine wannabe type book about a boy who suspects that his new friend is a vampire. There’s a bit about pizza and garlic I know. I want to say the paperback version I had had a yellow spine/layout.
I believe this was a book that had a few different stories, but there is one in particular I am remembering vividly. The characters were anthropomorphic animals I THINK. The story I remember clearly is a little vampire/Dracula with a toothache. He has one of those handkerchiefs tied around his head and his fangs are very big. He doesn't want to go to dentist but eventually he knows he has to. So he does and sees its not a big deal! PLEASE Help! I feel like I'm making this up but I remember the illustrations so clearly!
I had this book when I was a kid, so around 15 years ago, and it might have been a few years old by then. I can’t remember the title, but here’s what I do remember. It was large. Not just thick, but tall and wide. (I was a kid though, so it might be smaller than I’m remembering.) The one I had was hardcover. The cover might have been dark blue/purple/green, but I don’t remember what was actually on it. It had full-page illustrations, I think through most or all of the book. It had several stories about Halloween characters for kids: – King Neptune was lonely, so he became friends with the ghost of a whale or dolphin. – The ghost of a castle was rambunctious and scared people off from his treasure. – Two witches lived near each other and didn’t get along. – A vampire wanted to act in his school play, and his vampire parents attended in the end. Please help! I love this book, and I would really like to have it for my kids someday! Thank you!
