When I saw the Bailey School Kids series was getting turned into graphic novels, I knew I had to check it out. These stories were so popular when I was younger and it's nice to see them getting a second life. As expected with a graphic novel, the story isn't as in-depth but the details are in the pictures. The illustrator brings life to these classic novels and the art style she uses is on point with the overall theme. The dark colors, like purple and slime green, give that creepy feel and I love the amulet in the end, but hate how it cut off. I found myself hoping for more so can't wait to see what else Pearl Low has in store for us.
Final Verdict: VAMPIRES DON'T WEAR POLKA DOTS is a comedic graphic novel with a chilling setting and creepy vibe. I would recommend this to fans of vampires, the classic Bailey School Kids, and to children who love graphic novels.
