Overview
Jimmy Bishop loves doing 3 things:

1) Laughing at funny dog videos online,

2) watching his favorite show (Stop Police ) on TV,

3) and reading his favorite vampire book (Fang Goodness) over and over.



His self-involved older sister and workaholic Mom think he needs to stop obsessing already But when his Dad finally allows Jimmy to get a puppy before school starts, everything changes and Jimmy has something new to focus on: his amazing dog, Abby who seems to have some very unusual habits. She sleeps all day but is wired at night, and she runs from the garlic kelp biscuit made by Jimmy's strange new babysitter Mrs. Cragg. There's just something different about Abby. Could she possibly be...a vampire? Jimmy's best friend Irwin thinks Jimmy's being ridiculous, but then when Abby uncovers a real crime in progress and helps him become friends with an actual, human girl, even Irwin has to admit that perhaps Abby might have some super powers after all.

Balancing a caustic friendship, a first crush, bullying, and snarky sibling dynamics (not to mention a potentially paranormal new pet), Greenwald (the Charlie Joe Jackson books) gets his Crimebiters! series off to a peppy start. Eleven-year-old Jimmy Bishop is obsessed with vampire novels and TV crime-fighting shows, and has long wanted a dog. When his work-consumed parents finally give in, Jimmy adopts a mutt named Abby from a shelter, soon realizing that she sleeps all day, sneaks out his bedroom window at night—and has impressive fangs. Could Abby actually be a "crime-fighting vampire dog"? Yes or no, the dog has a chance to demonstrate her heroic skills during a showdown with a villain who has stolen Jimmy's mother's diamond necklace. Lively dialogue and brief chapters punctuated by Jimmy's wry observations keep the story moving swiftly, while Stower's cartoons underline the comedic wisdom of some of the facts Jimmy collects ("Fact: Adults never eat the disgusting stuff they feed you.") and the madcap action that unfolds. Ages 8–12. Author's agent: Brianne Johnson, Writers House. (Sept.)
