Nicu - The Littlest Vampire: Fangless (Nicu - The Littlest Vampire Series Book 1) by Elias Zapple is a spooky story with a good message for children. Nicu is a fangless vampire and lives in a house in the Carpathian mountains of Transylvania. He is always made fun of by his family and he wants to get his fangs back by any means so that he can silence all those who laugh at him. Even the dentist is not able to help nine-year-old Nicu. He meets the Fang Fairy and then things change. Will Nicu get fangs and be like other vampires?
It is an entertaining story for children which has humor and a good message rolled into one. The plot is original, spooky, humorous and crazy and will keep young readers glued to it. Nicu is the vampire everyone will end up loving. He is cute, he is adorable, and he is determined. The black and white sketches complement the plot and breathe life into the characters. The style of writing is simple, descriptive and detailed.
The author succeeds in getting across moral and ethical messages to readers and handles the topic of bullying refreshingly well. The hilarious moments, memorable characters, and incidents in the plot make the story fast paced and fluid. Bullying is a topic that all of us need to be aware of and the author raises awareness about the topic through Nicu's story. It is definitely a must-read for all children.
All is not well in Transylvania. Following a mysterious death, Nicu's family call in famed vampire detective Vamlock to investigate. Nicu must then stop a possible all out war between vampires and humans, as well as come to terms with the death itself. Poor Nicu.
I haven't the sluggiest what to write,
And to top it all I've been up all night.
My eyes feel heavy, my throwing arm aches,
I feel like baking lots of slug-filled cakes.
So what is the answer, give me a clue
If you do not I won't know what to do.
Least my books keep me busy,
Though I'm starting to feel very dizzy.
I need a lie down to rest my mind,
Which I'll do now and... (loud snoring).

Elias Zapple's Rhymes from the Cabbage Patch
Take a gander, listen, marvel at the incredible voices of the narrators and the superb written word of Elias Zapple. Remember, he has his Crack Commando Slug Unit nearby.
Elias Zapple’s retelling of Charles Dickens’ Christmas fable tells the story of Elias Zapple, a man with a wealth of cabbages to match the coldness of his heart. On a mystical Christmas Eve, he’s visited by three ghost slugs forcing Zapple to make a choice: change, or become worm food.
In a few days, or a couple of days or one day in the immediate future there'll be another new book and this'll not just be any ordinary book. This new book is the sequel to the highly acclaimed Jellybean the Dragon - one of my slugs' most popular books. And the title of this sequel? Cyril the Dragon. Keep your eyes and feelers glued and ready.
