Pinocchio Vampire Slayer 2

Sequel alert! You might not want to read this until you’ve read the first book.

“What do you call a dumb vampire who gets distracted by a cricket?
…Dead.”

Pinocchio’s back! Taking names and killing vamps with only the power of lies and his wooden nose.   This time, he’s got a whole entourage of living puppets around to help him get his vengeance on the vampires who destroyed his family. 

Will he ever find the master vampire?  Was Gepetto right when he said Pinocchio is the key to killing the vampires?  Before he figures out the truth, Pinocchio will lose more friends and kill more fiends, but nothing will stop his quest to rid the world of the vampire menace.

My Review:  Once again, Pinocchio has won me over.  I loved the wisecracks, loved the sidekicks and their drama, I even loved the sad moments that caught me by surprise.   A lot of trilogies lose their mojo in the second book, but that didn’t happen here.  Something major happens about halfway through the book that you won’t see coming.  Let’s just say the rabbits of ill portent are involved, so you know it’s important! 

“Pinocchio Vampire Slayer” was the most checked out graphic novel of last year, so I know there are lots of fans out there!  Pick up “Pinocchio Vampire Slayer and the Great Puppet Theater,” now available at the library.
