Who took the jam out of your doughnut???
There’s nothing worse than biting into a jam doughnut only to find that someone forgot to to put the jam in, or even worse, someone has ‘sucked’ all of the jam out. This is exactly what happens to Sam and you can join him on his quest to discover who the jam thief is…
Jampires is a whimsical rhyming story about a young boy called Sam who is distraught when he bites into a delicious doughnut only to find that it is jam-less. Determined to catch the culprit he sets up a trap and stays up late into the night to uncover the identity of the thief. The thief, actually thieves, swiftly reveal themselves…it’s the JAMPIRES! Don’t worry these aren’t looking for blood…no, no…they’re after your jam! It isn’t long before Sam finds himself whisked away to a land full of jam and all manner of sweet treats. This strange and bizarre land is the home of the Jampires who simply love eating jam.
Mixed in amongst the doughnuts and the jam are messages of kindness and compassion as Sam helps the Vampires get home safely and in return they agree to no longer steal his jam.
This is not a ground breaking read but many children will enjoy this simple mystery story and meeting the cute Jampires. The rhyming prose and cartoons full of humour make for a sweet-treat of a read that is both sweet and silly.
