Introduction: Within the walls of a gloomy estate known as Blackwater, Liz Austen discovers the strange world of Baron Nicolai Zaba, a man who lives in constant fear. What is the secret of the ancient chapel's underground vault? Why are the words In Evil Memory scrawled on a wall? Who secretly threatens the Baron? All the answers lie within these pages but be warned: reading this book will make your blood run cold. Eric Wilson novels excite the imagination of young readers in grades 4 - 8. Appealing to children's inherent keen interest in mystery, Eric Wilson has skilfully woven accurate Canadian geographic and historic information into his writing. He also touches on current social and political issues in many of his novels. As such, these novels lend themselves to the integrated study of the mystery genre with Canadian geography topics in social studies and investigation units in science. Vampires of Ottawa provides rich material for the study of setting, characterization and plot development. It can be used independently or as an introduction to the other novels in the series, thereby providing a national setting within which the regional stories come together to make a whole. The varying levels of difficulty in the novels provide opportunity to accomodate individual student ability, experience and interests. Vampires of Ottawa is a high interest novel that will motivate students to seek out information about the nation's capital city. With the vast amount of information available about Ottawa, students can supplement the package with meaningful research which will strengthen the impact of their work. In addition to readily available travel information, they will take great delight in finding information on the Internet that directly links to the places or events in the novels. Members of Parliament or lawyers from the community who have appeared before the Supreme Court of Canada would be possible guest speakers knowledgeable about Ottawa.
