Publisher Comments:

When Tootie gets her first teeth, its clear to her big brother that shes no ordinary baby. But how to convince Mom and Dad?

It happens overnight: little sister Tootie goes from cuddly, ga-ga-googoo, I-want-my-ba-ba baby...vampire baby. Now shes sinking her pointy fangs into everything — furniture, toys, and especially her big brother ("Youch, Tootie! No bite!" ). Mom insists that its just a phase, but Tooties brother knows better. Just look at her hairline! Or the fact that all her favorite foods are bloodred! With perfect comic timing, Kelly Bennett and Paul Meisel give a fresh slant to the new-baby story, proving that even monstrous little arrivals have a funny way of staking their siblings affections.

Review:

"Bennett's young narrator loves his younger sister, Tootie — until she grows a pair of fangs. After that, he's shouting, 'Youch, Tootie! No bite!' on a regular basis. His parents refuse to believe they've sired a vampire ('She's hungry,' Mom says, explaining why Tootie won't sleep at night. 'And take off that garlic necklace!'), but after the boy tries to foist Tootie off on an actual vampire family, he discovers that he's more protective than he realized. Meisel gives Tootie a pair of sharp-looking fangs, playing up her brother's anxieties, while never quite answering the question, 'Is she or isn't she?' Ages 4 — 8. Author's agent: Erin Murphy, Erin Murphy Literary Agency. Illustrator's agent: Jennifer Mattson, Andrea Brown Literary Agency. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
