My Life As A Third Grade Vampire is a fun series for elementary-age readers. This engaging story is from the perspective of the main character - a very likable, but slightly self-conscious, third grader! This charming, humorous, non-scary story subtly shares important messages on individuality, anti-bullying, and self-acceptance with candor, humor, and sensitivity. Full-cover illustrations have quirky humor and personality that will delight young readers! Fun for any age!

Doris, Zorba, and Orloff are vampire orphans, only it is not certain if they realize that? When they transfer from Transylvania to their new school, the trio fit right in, much to the surprise of their teacher Ms. Bogus, their principal Mr. Ernie, and the school nurse Miss Needle. While it's clear they are "different" from other students, the vampire orphans soon prove that they're all about helping, learning, and achieving great things!

The story follows Doris, Zorba, and Orloff in their day-to-day lives of being a third grade vampires, pressures they feel from being different, and ultimately, how they learn to acceptãand even embraceãtheir uniqueness.

With all the bullying that goes on today, it's hard for kids to come to the point of self-acceptance. The purpose of this book is to shed light on individuality and being comfortable in your own skin regardless of how different you might feel.

Journey along to discover how the characters learn to embrace their uniqueness and find self-acceptance.

My Life As A Third Grade Vampire also includes:
a glossary of Vampire and other words.
Vampire Legend, Lore, and More.
Questions for Discussion and Debate.
