Valentina's Spooky Adventures

Valentina’s Spooky Adventures are a series of children’s books featuring Valentina, a young vampire girl.

Valentina and the Haunted Mansion

Valentina isn’t thrilled with her parents’ decision to move into an ancient, gigantic mansion in the middle of nowhere—filled with dark, unsettling rooms, and far away from civilization, where they don’t have to worry about hiding who they are. Sure, it may be perfect for a vampire family like hers, but moving here meant leaving her best friends behind.

The new house has some perks, though. Valentina gets to choose her own room, and when she explores the mansion on her own, she discovers a trophy room, a museum room, a music room, and much more.

From the moment Valentina started exploring, however, she’s felt someone watching her. Strange things start to happen all around her: footprints appear in the dust, a disembodied voice sneezes….

…and just because Valentina is a vampire, doesn’t mean she doesn’t get scared like any other little girl.

Valentina and the Whackadoodle Witch

It’s not every day that a witch gets stuck in your chimney, dangling upside down.

When Valentina and her new-found friend Jerry play dress-up on the attic, the Whackadoodle Witch comes crashing down the chimney. She’s one of the most powerful witches of all time, but even she can’t free herself without a spell book.

Just one problem: that spell book was snatched by Masked Muggers, invisible thieves who steal valuable objects and hide them where you’d least expect it.

If Valentina and Jerry want to help the witch, they’ll have to search the house from top to bottom. Not an easy task in a house crawling with monsters in all shapes and sizes.

Valentina and the Masked Mummy

When noises shake Valentina’s bedroom in the middle of the night, and her resident ghost, Jerry, hides under her bed, the little vampire girl tumbles into yet another adventure.

Eager to investigate the source of the uproar, she bumps into her brother Vlad in the hallway. He’s as clueless as she is, but at least he’s not as terrified of the noises as Jerry.

The trio follows the noise to the museum room, where they find an opened sarcophagus, and a mummy wearing a mask….
