Welcome to the vampire city of Saruta, where the sun never rises, and all the vampire children love trying to stay up late. Hipira Kun is a precocious young vampire whose best friend is a fairy named Soul. Hipira Kun and Soul are an odd couple to say the least, and their games, pranks, and adventures are extraordinary even for dwellers of this supernatural city. Hipira: The Little Vampire is a delightfully bright twist to traditionally dark subject matter in the spirit of The Nightmare Before Christmas and Monsters, Inc. Filled with fun, wonder, and heart, the illustrations look like they have been pulled off the screen of a top-flight animated feature. Hipira is a children's book like no other, one that will appeal to readers of all ages.
