Summary

In Transylvania, a boy cries... vampire! Young Ion is bored by life in the village. So to spice things up, the imaginative prankster runs false vampire drills, much to the annoyance of the villagers. But one night, a shadow passes by Ion's window. This time it's no joke. It's a REAL vampire! Have all of Ion's fibs come back to bite him, or can the boy find a way out of this batty situation? In this Far Out Fables adventure, Aesop's The Boy Who Cried Wolf receives a playful, modern twist. Experience a classic fable like never before in this full-color graphic novel retelling for kids!

Horn Book Review

Each brief, accessible paneled comic retells a fable with a sci-fi twist: a bored boy in Transylvania pranks villagers about a vampire attacking (until it does), a time portal drops a T. rex egg at a modern farmhouse, etc. The unremarkable revamps are improved by thorough back matter, which notes changes to source materials and poses "visual questions" to help navigate graphic narratives. Glos. [Review covers these Far Out Fables titles: The Boy Who Cried Vampire, The Lion and the Mouse and the Invaders from Zurg, The Robo-Battle of Mega Tortoise vs. Hazard Hare, and The Ugly Dino Hatchling.] (c) Copyright 2019.
