The suggestion is from Elena Gil Perez4th grade student: “For our age I have many books to ask the Three Wise Men, lady problems, The Vampire Vladimir Y Amalia Fag because I really like adventure books, with ghosts, witches and vampires”

Amelia Fang and the Barbarian Dance It is the first volume that reaches us in Spain of a new series of books which has a protagonist vampire girl, their family relationships, their habits and social customs. The world of Nocturnia, where darkness reigns, glitter is terrifying and unicorns are the cause of nightmares. Amelia Fag loves to play caught-you elf and pet her pet pumpkin Pulposi. But she can’t stand to attend the boring barbaric dance organized by their parents. It is an interesting story, where Amalia rebels against the label that her family imposes on her life, since they are of high vampire lineage and she prefers to be more “normal”. It is an intriguing adventure full of fantasies.

Amelia is accompanied by many secondary characters, among them I highlight the butler uuuh.

The book contains many illustrations made by the author herself. And in the end we have a typical recipe book of Nocturnia.
