About the Author
In spite of the adage to write what you know, Anne Marie Pace has never been a vampire, a ballerina, a groundhog, or a tow truck driver. She is a picture book author whose latest book is MOUSE CALLS, illustrated by Erin Kraan, from Beach Lane Books (Simon & Schuster). Other books include GROUNDHUG DAY (Little, Brown), BUSY-EYED DAY (Beach Lane Books), SUNNY'S TOW TRUCK SAVES THE DAY (Abrams) and the four books of the VAMPIRINA BALLERINA series (Disney-Hyperion), which were adapted into the hit Disney Junior animated series VAMPIRINA. She lives in Virginia with her husband, three cats, and two dogs, and loves frequent visits from her young adult children.

LeUyen Pham has illustrated more than one hundred books for children, including the Caldecott Honor book Bear Came Along by Richard T. Morris and the bestselling Princess in Black series by Shannon and Dean Hale. She is the co-creator, along with Shannon Hale, of the bestselling graphic memoirs Real Friends, Best Friends, and Friends Forever. Her own books include The Bear Who Wasn't There and Big Sister, Little Sister. A graduate of the ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, LeUyen lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two sons.
Reviews
Praise for Vampirina Ballerina
"Readers will applaud this elegantly designed, well-told story. Brava, indeed."
--Kirkus

"Pham and Pace are entirely in sync in this sweetly goth "how to" for vampirettes.The underlying messages are familiar....But seldom have these lessons been expounded with so much charm."
--Publishers Weekly

"Pace's funny, matter-of-fact advice...works in harmony with Pham's expressive watercolor pen-and-ink artwork....Kids who aren't into frilly will welcome this departure from typical ballerina books."
--Ann Kelley, Booklist

"Vampirina is just as endearing in her devotion to ballet as Katharine Holabird's dancing mouse in the popular "Angelina Ballerina" series (Viking). This story of perseverance and determination will appeal to young dancers, who will identify with Vampirina's struggles and cheer her on as she ultimately takes her triumphant bow on the flower-strewn stage."
--Linda L. Walkins, SLJ

"Pham's illustrations steal the show, offering plenty of visual jokes for both vampire fans...and balletomanes....[T]he message that passion, dedication, and patience have beautiful results is inspirational for any reader."
--Katie Bircher, Horn Book
