The Boxcar Children Vampires

Well, not exactly.  But having explored Little Vampire Women (“Christmas won’t be Christmas without any corpses,” grumbled Jo, lying on the rug.) I figured anything is possible.  So when I saw Abigail Goben’s mention of a vampire Boxcar Children book (in this post by Betsy Bird) I had to see to believe.

So, yep, here’s #120 by must-be-a-vampire-to-still-be-writing Gertrude Chandler Warner.

The publisher’s synopsis:

The Aldens meet Mr. Hudson, a local author who is best known for his novel about a vampire.  But rumors of a real vampire are going around town – a vampire who haunts the graveyard behind Mr. Hudson’s house!  But since vampires don’t exist, the children soon realize that someone must be trying to scare people away from Greenfield!  Who brought the old legend back to life – and why?

Hmm…they don’t exist, do they?
