42 Word Retrospective: The Last Vampire by Willis Hall

The Last Vampire by Willis Hall (The Bodley Head, 1982) A quintessentially middle-class English family encounters the last (vegetarian) vampire in this YA comedy of happenstance and misunderstanding. By fleshing out every character — even the wolves! — Willis Hall both draws attention to, and disabuses his readers of, the vampire tropes of legend.
