When the summer moon is full, a beach trip is an epic way to spend the night.

With her signature poise, Vampirina and her clan gear up for a festive time at the beach. Keeping her ballet lessons in mind, Vampirina demi-pliƩs on a surfboard, leaps for a volleyball, and finishes each competition with style, even if she doesn't always come out on top.

Fans of Vampirina Ballerina will love her new adventure. When you combine fun characters, Vampirina, and trip to the beach, you're in a for a fun surprise! 

The best way to spend time at the beach is with friends and family. Vampirina's moonlight trip to the beach is full of fun, dancing, catching the waves, and playing games. This wouldn't be a Vampirina book without dancing! 

Whether you're a new fan to this lovable character and her book series, or a long time fan, the newest Vampirina book is one you'll be sure to love. This is one unforgettable beach trip readers will enjoy going on. 


Vampirina Ballerina
Oh, to be a ballerina! It’s a challenge for any little girl, but even more so if you happen to be a vampire like VampirinaFirst of all, you have to find a class that meets at night. Then you have to figure out how to perfect your form when you can’t see yourself in the mirror?  And then there’s wearing pink (not the most flattering of colors if you happen to be undead) and that nagging urge to take a little nip out of the other dancers. And worse of all… STAGE FRIGHT!!!

Vampirina Ballerina Hosts a Sleepover

Before Vampirina can host her very first sleepover there are a few things she must keep in mind: be polite and offer her guests food (like blood pudding); plan some games like scavenger hunt (but keep the clues simple so no one gets lost); and don’t forget to dance! Vampirina may be a little nervous at first, but by following a few simple rules she will host the Best Sleepover Ever.
