From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4-- Vintage Pinkwater. A round-faced hero, three wempires who have a strong resemblance to the author, a conversational narrative, and wonderful Yiddish phrasing--all bear the mark of the creator of Yobgorgle, the Snarkout boys, and the second-grade werewolf. This plot concerns a boy who watches a vampire movie and decides to become one. He dresses up in a costume (made by his mother) and proceeds to terrify his little sister and his schoolmates. Three wempires visit at midnight, and fortunately do not like to drink blood but much prefer ginger ale, cold chicken, and sardine and onion sandwiches; when the narrator's mother discovers the mess they have made in her kitchen, she throws them out. No matter--our hero will continue to enjoy his vampire existence. The deceptively simple illustrations are cleverly designed, well placed, and add much humor. It is the writing, however, that provides the chuckles and demonstrates Pinkwater's continued zaniness. A volume for all would-be vampires. --Suzanne Wolfe, formerly at Shady Side Academy Junior School, Pittsburgh
