Hampire by Sudpita Bardhan-Quallen - OPTIONAL

Bardhan-Quallen, Sudpita Hampire, illustrated by Howard Fine.  Harper, 2011.  $17.  PICTURE BOOK.  The barnyard animals are frightened every morning by the red, dripping evidence of the nightly forays of Hampire.  When Duck craves a midnight snack, he rouses the entire barnyard as he runs, with an armload of snacks, from the predator.  But don’t judge someone that you’ve never met.  Hampire is a little reminiscent of Chicken Little, but with a definite Halloween twist.  EL (K-3) – OPTIONAL.
