Brief Book Reviews: Jacquelyn and the Sparkly Emo Vampire Goat (by A.G. Carpenter)

Jacquelyn and the Sparkly Emo Vampire Goat by A.G. Carpenter

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


When this author first told me the title of her book at LibertyCon 2017, I was wary. Very wary. However, when she told me that it was a fairy tale spoof of Jack and the Beanstalk combined with a satire of Twilight, I bought it immediately. Best five bucks I have ever spent! Read this aloud to my girlfriend and our nine-month-old, and we all loved it. Difficult to read in place because we could not stop laughing all the way through this madcap little jewel. My son loved Edward’s voice, especially since it is written (and I read it) like The Count from Sesame Street. I highly recommend this delightfully fun tale to anyone of all ages. If you have a sense of humor, like fairy tales, and hate Twilight, this is the book for you!
