If your are friends with a vampire, then it will certainly liven things up in Nether Bogsbottom. Mind you, knowing the creature's interesting eating habits, you'd be forgiven for making sure that it was full up before you went out to play! There is one logistic problem though. If Tony wants to take his vampire friend on holiday, how is he going to solve the tricky puzzle of transporting his friends' residential coffin? This problem pales into insignificance when Thelma the Thirsty, William the Wild and Sabina the Sinister, to name but several other vampires, all get involved in the action. However everybody survives and the whole is quite fun. There are four other titles in the series if you get 'bitten'.
