Buffy the Vampire Slayer Reviews
This was the cutest picture book. It is the perfect way to introduce a child into the world of Buffy and when they are older force them to watch all the episodes. I loved looking for the little details that would make any Buffy fan smile in delight, or in my case grin like a dork and make a giggle sound. You see familiar faces of people Buffy goes up against in the show and her little pig stuffed animal, Mr. Gordo! The illustrations by Kim Smith are so adorable. As this is meant for children the ...more
Baby Buffy faces closet monster. Cute.
I like the little word bubble asides that explain how to pronounce "Giles" and "Xander."
Purists may get tripped up on the fact that it does not exactly follow Buffy canon, seeing as she didn't move to Sunnydale or meet Willow and Xander until high school.
The cutest picture book I've read in a while!
Als jahrelanger und riesengroßer Buffy Fan könnt ihr auch sicherlich vorstellen, welche Freudensprünge ich gemacht habe, als ich dieses Schmuckstück hier in einer Buchhandlung in New York entdeckt habe. Ich wusste tatsächlich nicht, dass es existiert, doch das tut es: ein Buffy Bilderbuch für Kinder.
Natürlich habe ich das Buch gleich verschlungen und in einem Rutsch durchgelesen, was keine große Leistung war, da nur sehr wenig Text, dafür aber unfassbar schöne Illustrationen vorhanden sind.
Emotions: Being brave
Clearly suitable for moms and dads wanting to spread the Buffy love to their kids but also for the uninitiated. Told by her school librarian (who apparently worked at her elementary school, too), Buffy is informed to just "be brave." Although in disbelief, this is just what she does, in true Buffy fashion (as unbelievable of a storyline as it is).
The pictures are great and the story is kid friendly. But I wouldn't really recommend unless you are a huge Buffy fan, and it's mainly for you. The 'monsters' are sort of friendly looking, but they are all baddies from the show, so some are kind of horrifying. (Guy with no skin, anyone?)
Cutesy, but more for adults with nostalgia for the show than kids.
This book has two distinct audiences: young readers and Buffy fans. It has plenty to offer both!
Buffy fans will see familiar characters and monsters. For the young readers, it introduces a tough young girl who, in spite of that, has an all too common fear: fear of the dark. It also sneaks in little asides to help them pronounce names like "Giles" and "Xander" on their own!
Definitely recommend to Buffy fans with or without children (I personally fall into the latter category!), or parents whose c ...more

AUDIENCE APPEAL: HIGH
When Buffy was only right, she was afraid of the sounds coming from her closet in the dark. With some teaching from Giles, her school librarian, and support from her friends Willow and Xander, she might be able to conquer her fears and make some new friends.
Of course you have to ignore the inconsistencies from the series – because Buffy fans will ...more
