Amelia Fang needs to save her bouncing pumpkin pet Squashy from the palace of the spoilt-sprout ,Prince Tangine. How she does it and how she teaches the Prince a valuable lesson manners, friendship and acceptance is the main thrust of the book. This is a gorgeous book full of adventure, friendships, secrets, disgusting food, monsters, a well mannered ghost butler and ghouls...
The book is extremely eye-catching, I love the cover, the black, grey and white artwork with the orange foil details looks absolutely scrumptious!!!
The introductory pages showing the map of Nocturnia and drawings of all the characters with their likes and dislikes is brilliant!
The book is enjoyable to read, it’s basically charming and disgusting in equal measures! I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading Amelia Fang & The Unicorn Lords and Amelia Fang & The Memory Thief.
5⭐️ + 2⭐️ For the gorgeous artwork.
My only one issue has nothing to do with the actual book so that is why it does not retract from the 5⭐️ review, It’s just that the copy that I received has the pages falling out so will be sending it back for a replacement copy.
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!
