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.
