What happens when you mix zombies, werewolves, and aliens with the science of motion, matter, and energy? You get some of the wackiest science books you’ve ever read! Dive into the science of animal and plant cells with vampires. Join Bigfoot on an exploration of adaptation. Check out what ghosts can teach you about atoms. The entire Monster Science series shows you what happens when the world of science collides with your favorite monsters!


I don't normally review non-fiction but I just had to review this one.

Vampires and Cells isn't your typical science book. Its a fun book to read as it combines a science text book and a comic.  The artwork by Jok is outstanding, if I had pictures to show you I would. I found Vampires and Cells to be very funny and really should be in every school on the planet, I would have paid more attention in my Science class if we had this book.  As the synopsis states it is part of a series, and if the rest of the series are as good as this, then these books should do well. Overall  Vampires and Cells is a very entertaining science book.

Reason for edit - Capstone kindly emailed a high resolution image to use in this review. So I would like to say a big thank you to them for doing that.
