Dick and Jane and Vampires

    Dick and Jane and Vampires

    Dick and Jane are back with a little help from their friend, a vampire. What? Yes the popular Dick and Jane series created in the 30’s are back with a new book called, Dick and Jane and Vampires. When innocent Dick and Jane meet a creepy, cape-wearing vampire, the unexpected happens: he becomes their friend! Dick and Jane and Vampires borrows from the classic stories and art we all know and love, but adds an of-the-moment twist: a vampire, illustrated in the classic Dick and Jane style.

    Dick and Jane and VampiresCollectors of vampire memorabilia need a copy of this book: It deserves a place in their collections next to that box of Count Chocula cereal and the puppet of “Sesame Street’s” Count Von Count. A copy of this book should also go into a time capsule: It’s a good way to show future generations what was going on in American pop culture circa 2010. And at least a few parents with small children will have fun with this book as bedtime reading without worrying about causing bad dreams. In fact, I can think of at least one child who would probably have this book on her nightstand: Renesmee Cullen, daughter of “Twilight’s” Edward Cullen and Bella Swan.-Nick Owchar
