Joey and Harry do NOT like each other. Stuck together on a school trip to a museum, things couldn’t get any worse, until they meet some incorrigible monsters! The monsters are on a field trip of their own, bringing BAD LUCK to the human world. Quickly, they decide to take the children back to where they’ve come from and feed them to their king. But what exactly lies ahead for Joey and Harry at the Ministry of Mischief? Will they make it back home in time for tea? Or will they be stuck with these misbehaving monsters forever?

Praise for Rules for Vampires by Alex Foulkes:

'Fans of fast-paced, well-written gothic romps will devour Rules for Vampires' Phil Earle, bestselling author of When the Sky Falls

‘Deliciously dark, fangtastically feisty and gloriously gothic!' Laura Ellen Anderson, author of Amelia Fang

About The Author

Alex Foulkes is from Stoke-on-Trent in the Midlands of England, and lives with her boyfriend and their dog, Mac, who is just small enough to sit on the back of a broomstick (very convenient!). She has worked as a teaching assistant and a school librarian. When she's not reading and reading and reading, she's writing her very own stories with chills, thrills, and maybe even a talking spider! Her debut Middle Grade Rules for Vampires was published in 2021, and the follow-up will be released in Autumn 2022.
