Sure, Dracula can live forever, but he really just wants to hit the beach! To catch some waves, the blood-sucking bat will need a little help. That's why he's captured the brainy Buzz Beaker. Now, this wacky whiz kid must turn the Lord of the Vampires into the King of the Beach, or he could be the monster's next meal.

Dracula has kidnapped Buzz Beaker and is holding him hostage to build a machine to allow him to be able to go out in the sun. Dracula misses hanging out at the beach and getting a tan. Well, Buzz Beaker is happy to help – even though he was kidnapped – and ends up helping Dracula fight against his own minions who turned against him!I really am loving the Buzz Beaker graphic novels. Definitely running along the lines of Jimmy Neutron, Buzz is an African-American boy who has a series knack for inventing cool scientific devices. The books include a lot of information after the story ends – including vocabulary words, discussion questions, writing prompts, and more about the subject covered.

A great way to get kids interested in science and reading.

    I loved Jimmy Neutron when I was younger and Dracula is always awesome. The fact that this book is sort of a combination of the two, makes me want to find someone who would love to read it.

    Haha this sounds great! You’re really making me wish I was back in primary school (elementary to you Americans!). I need to get a whole pile of these books and reclaim my younger years 😀
