Draculiza Flies Into Bookstores

Draculiza wishes she could be a princess in one of the fairy tales her mother reads to her at bedtime. She dreams of castles and courts and crowns each night. Alas, she's from Transylvania and that kind of throws a monkeywrench into her plans. But that doesn't stop our feisty little vampire. Along with her top advisor, her pet bat Spike, she finds a clever way to break into the fairy tale world and turn it upside down!

Having an imagination and wishing on that has always been something everyone does. Draculiza is no different. Her problem, though, is she wants to be a fairy princess; however as fate would have it that's a bit of impossible because she's a vampire.

Despite her mother telling her why she can't have this dream, she refuses to listen. She comes up with a plan and with her advisor, her pet bat, Spike, Draculiza sets out on an adventure to make her dream come true.

First time children's book author Bianca Bagatourian says, "We all have a little princess inside, and they’re not all necessarily blonde with blue eyes. When I was growing up, none of the princesses in fairy tales looked like me. It was confusing! I wanted to write a story that emphasized the idea that we can all shine!” (Draculiza (Cedar Grove Publishing, 2015, ISBN: 9781941958254, $17.95, www.cedargrovebooks.com)

Draculiza is targeted toward young girls. In the wake of all the messages targeted toward young girls about what is the "right" way to look, walk, talk, dress and do, Draculiza's simple and basic message stands out. The message: it's all right to just be yourself. Visit Draculiza and Spike at www.draculiza.com. There's a blog and lots of fun things to do.
