    Engaging and entertaining reading for teens that shows the invaluable act of overcoming prejudices and opening up to know others, especially those we perceive as different. Giving yourself the opportunity to meet and help others, can be a greater gift for those who give it than for those who receive it. ________ Lectura entrañable y entretenida para adolescentes que muestra el acto invaluable de superar prejuicios y abrirse a conocer a los demás, especialmente a quienes percibimos como diferentes.

He is old and tired of fighting for normal simple things. But then he comes across a group of children and young adults, who were playing on the outskirts of town. Almost immediately they take him under their protection, seeing him as a gentle soul. Thus, their adventure begins to smuggle Garlic from one end of town to the other under the nose of their parents and the authority. The story describes just this one day, but tells a wonderful story of seeing someone's soul, and not be pejudiced by things told to them. A lovely story and a great adventure told.

    This was a unique story! I enjoyed the look into the world from a vampire’s point of view. I also enjoyed how accepting children are and how welcoming of curiosity Garlic was. This was a delight to read!
