It’s moving time for the ink drinkers Odilon, Carmilla, and Draculink. They need to find a new cemetery in which to plunk down their coffins—and quickly! Otherwise Draculink will crumble into dust and Carmilla will leave for good. Can Odilon come up with the perfect resting place?

In the third episode of the bizarre Ink Drinker series, following The Ink Drinker and A Straw for Two, Draculink, Odilon, and Carmilla are destined for disaster unless they find a new home. A subway line is being built under their cemetery, and soon their world (and their coffins) will come crashing down. Draculink, a vampire-like creature who sucks book ink rather than blood, will disintegrate into moldy paper, and Odilon's sweetheart Carmilla will be forced to return home, destroying all Odilon's fantasies about a future family of wee little ink suckers. Luckily, our weird hero has an idea, if only everything can fall into place before it's too late.
Perhaps it is the translation, but the text of this latest addition to the series is somewhat clunky, with mysterious leaps at important moments: if the giant Library of the World has been almost next-door to the cemetery all this time, why didn't the book-lusting ink drinkers think of it sooner? Still, Eric Sanvoisin's altogether out-of-this-world story will delight readers with a quirky bent, as will Martin Matje's shadowy illustrations. (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
