Ever since Vampirita left her home in Lima, Peru for Sunny City, California, her life has been dull and gloomy—and not the chilly air, moldy tombstones, and scurrying cockroaches kind of gloomy. There’s not a single creaky floorboard in her new house; no one at school eats cricket and worm empanadas; and the next-door neighbors, August and Molly, are annoyingly nice. All her mom wants is for them to blend in, but Vampirita would give anything to be back in Peru digging tombs with her abuevampiritos. With help from reluctant friends, she hatches a plan to get her family chased out of town pitchforks-and-torches style. Will her scheme work, or will she find some spookiness in Sunny City?

Pura Belpré Honor-Winning Author

Mariana Llanos is not a vampire, but just like Vampirita, she’s from Lima, Perú. After she moved to Oklahoma in 2002, Mariana began writing in English. Since 2013 she hasn’t stopped publishing books in both English and Spanish. Her latest works include Luca’s Bridge/El Puente de Luca (Penny Candy Books 2019, 2020 ALSC Notable Book), Eunice and Kate (Penny Candy Books 2019), and Run Little Chaski!  (Barefoot Books 2021, JLG Gold Standard Selection, Oklahoma Book Awards Finalist). Mariana believes the love for reading is contagious and she’s visited over 200 schools around the world thanks to virtual technology. She’s the co-founder of LatinxPitch, a Twitter event that looks to boost the representation of Latino creators in children’s literature. Vampirita is Mariana’s first chapter book series. Just like Vampirita, she misses the grim gray skies of Lima but has learned to make some friends.
