London, Paris, Amsterdam and New York will never be the same following a visit by the ebullient vegetarian vampire, Vlad, and his guests, the Stone family. Brian Cant's Vlad is appropriately larger-than-life, a thoroughly convincing and unique protagonist, who delights and infuriates us as much as he does his long-suffering fellow travellers. Cant successfully differentiates secondary characters by age, gender and nationality, adding just a touch of parody, which adds to the humor. His experience and skill as a presenter of children's programming greatly enhance this work. He infuses the energy and wit hinted at, but never consummated, by the author and pulls off a performance that will appeal to young audiences. B.M.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 96]
