Hi Niki! The place looks great! Mind if I have a brownie? They look soooo good. *takes a bite* What did you put in them. *nom nom* Yuuuum. *crumbs fly from mouth* We're really glad to be here today and tell you *crumbs dribble down shirt* about LITTLE DEAD RIDING HOOD!
You know things are going to suck when you’re the new kid. But when you’re the new kid and a vampire… well, it bites!
Unlike most kids, Scarlet Small’s problems go far beyond just trying to fit in. She would settle for a normal life, but being twelve years old for an entire century is a real pain in the neck. Plus, her appetite for security guards, house pets and bloody toms (tomato juice) is out of control. So in order to keep their vampire-secret, her parents, Mort and Drac, resort to moving for the hundredth time, despite Scarlet being dead-set against it. Things couldn’t be worse at her new school, either. Not only does she have a strange skeleton-girl as a classmate, but a smelly werewolf is intent on revealing her secret. When she meets Granny—who fills her with cookies, goodies, and treats, and seems to understand her more than anyone—she’s sure things will be different. But with a fork-stabbing incident, a cherry pie massacre, and a town full of crazy people, Scarlet’s O-positive she’ll never live to see another undead day.
Not even her Vampire Rule Book can save her from the mess she’s in. Why can’t she ever just follow the rules?

You know, Scarlet Small really likes sweets, too. One of her favorites is cherry pie. But you'll have to read the book to find out why! Trust me....cherries...vampires...it's not a good combination. In the meantime, here's a recipe for our favorite brownies. They're not as good as yours, but they might be a close second.
