Review: Buffy the Vampire Slayer: A Picture Book - Kim Smith

What's that strange sound coming from inside the closet? Buffy, Xander, and Willow are determined to find out! The campy, cult-classic '90s TV show is now a charming picture book for fans who are still a little too young for slaying. Join little Buffy and her friends as they investigate the mysterious noise, consult Giles, the school librarian, and encounter all your favorite Buffyverse monsters. This sweet, silly, and not-so-scary book makes a perfect bedtime story, and is ideal for parents introducing the next generation to Buffy and fans looking to experience it in a whole new way. With eye-catching illustrations by Kim Smith, this newest addition to the POP Classics series is a must-have for the shelves of Buffy fans everywhere.

Review:
I'm a huge Buffy fan and have watched the series several times over the years so of course when I was offered a copy of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer Picture Book I couldn't resist. This really is the cutest little picture book and it's a great way to introduce another new generation to a series so many adults already love.

The story doesn't stick strictly to cannon which is absolutely fine in my opinion, it wouldn't exactly be child friendly if it did now would it! What it does is take us back in time to meet a young eight year old Buffy who is afraid of the dark, we get to see younger versions of Willow and Xander too and even Giles puts in an appearance which should thrill fans of the series.

I'm not going to say much more so I'll just end this review with a couple of pictures but I'm sure Buffy fans will love this and I can't wait to read it to my nephew when he's just a tiny bit older!
