Scream Street 2: Blood of the Witch Paperback
Part of the Scream Street series
In Scream Street, discarded blood from cuts, grazes and nosebleeds is filtered out of the sewerage system and channelled to the vampire residents via taps in their kitchens.
Urgh! In an underhand attempt to force Luke to return Samuel Skipstone's powerful Tales of Scream Street, Sir Otto Sneer cuts off the blood supply to the house of Luke's best friend, Resus Negative.
Desperate for blood, Alston Negative, Resus's father, enrages a group of sewer rats, inadvertently creating a swarm of vampire rodents which rise up out of the sewers to attack the residents of the street.
Luke, Resus and Cleo must save Scream Street from the rats while searching for the second of the founding fathers' relics, a vial of witch's blood - and without being turned into vampires themselves.

Review by Rhinoa
The first 3 books in the Scream Street series introduce us to the main characters Luke Watson (werewolf), Resus Negative (vampire) and Chloe Farr (mummy tomboy). Luke was a normal boy growing up with his parents when one day his whole family are transported into Scream Street by the mysterious Government Housing of Unusual Lifeforms (G.H.O.U.L.) movers. There Luke makes friends reluctantly while trying to find a way to go back home. He begins to settle in, but his human parents are having a very difficult time getting used to the strange characters and their supernatural abilities. Luke and his two friends set out on a quest to regain all the original artefacts of the towns founders. In the first book they much find a fang of the original vampire, the second a vial of the witches blood and in the third the heart of the mummy who founded the town. They are guided by an author who trapped himself in his own book and are chased at every step in their journey by evil landlord Otto Sneer. These are a fun read and can be enjoyed by older readers too. The illustrations are great and it have just the right amount of bite in them. It looks like another great children's Liverpool (go scousers!) writer is on the scene.
