Vampires at Easter, Diary of a Snoopy Cat by R.F. Kristi contains characters from hamsters to vampire bats. Inca, the main character and voice of the story, is a cat who belongs to a cheese shop owner and runs an all-animal detective agency. Inca and her cat friends, Cara and Fromage, together with other friends, including their hamster friend, Charlotte, are off on a great adventure in Transylvania. Their human, Missy, is hired to cater a scary-theme party in Bran Castle, which is known for being Dracula’s home. Everyone travels to Transylvania and begins preparations for the party. After solving one mystery about missing cheese, the friends get involved in a much more sinister and frightening case involving vampires, bats, secret towers and magic potions.
Children will love to read about Inca and her fellow detective friends in Vampires at Easter by R.F. Kristi. Each of the animal characters has a distinct and interesting personality that brings something to this imaginative story. Readers can identify with any number of these characters. The illustrations by Jorge Valle add tremendously to the book's delightful presentation. I enjoyed imagining a cat writing the story down in a journal and the relationships between humans and animals are fun and even accurate in some respects. Kristi’s mixing of clothing-wearing, self-assured cats with bats and vampires in a castle in Transylvania is imagination genius. The book is perfect for young readers who like animal characters and also to be just a little bit frightened.
