    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...

    This book had the potential, considering its source material, to provide a really powerful story for a young girl (or boy) to read. While picture books are often simplified for younger readers to absorb, they should still tell a good story and this one really lacked for me. I'll admit,...

    The cutest picture book I've read in a while! ...

    UMMMMMM, So can we get this cartoon on Nick now!?!?! ...

    Joss Whedon?s Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series premiered in 1997 and has remained popular ever since. I came to it late and am still working my way through the DVD box set. It is my go to show when I need some light entertainment because watching a group of young people fighting th...

    (Full review to come!) ...

    This takes the Buffy story during the TV series, but forgets there was movie (like many fans do). This time all of Sunnydale is there (Willow, Xander, Giles) but as if Buffy was an 8-year-old girl instead of the teen she was in the series. Actually it starts off as with Buffy "now" and...

    What most reviewers don?t remember is that this is a children?s book. They want to criticize the fact that Buffy didn?t know Willow or Xander as a child. Or the fact that all the monsters that try to kill Buffy just end up partying with her as a child. It?s a children?s book ...

    This book is so darn cute! I'm sure only fans of the show will really appreciate all the neat stuff about it, but it's still a nice children's book regardless about facing your fears. I loved the artwork and the fact that Buffy had every demon from the show in her closet. ...

    it was cute. i liked it. and there were lots of familiar faces for those of us who love the show ...

    This is the cutest thing in the world. If you love Buffy you'll adore this and making squealy sounds as you read it and then want to buy numerous copies for all of the small people you know to share the Buffy joy. ...

    Okay, this book is adorable! Buffy was my absolute favourite show growing up and while this book may not be canon, there are enough nostalgic easter eggs to keep the grown-ups happy while reading the cute story to children. Oh, and the illustrations are beautiful too! ...

    This was cute in a very basic way. I'm not sure kids would appreciate it or understand the background if someone didn't explain to them about the older Buffy. It seems to be more for adults to reminisce about Buffy as a kid. I enjoyed it, but not sure kids will. If you ignore what you ...

    The pictures are great, but this book is a disaster. It's obviously designed for Buffy fans to purchase for tiny kids that they know, but fans will not find anything familiar except the character and place names (and depictions of the actors). Franchise or not, some stories aren't mean...

    The pictures are great and the story is kid friendly. But I wouldn't really recommend unless you are a huge Buffy fan, and it's mainly for you. The 'monsters' are sort of friendly looking, but they are all baddies from the show, so some are kind of horrifying. (Guy with no skin, anyone...

    While I thought the book was charming and an adorable way to introduce the characters, I think the only group it is going to appeal to are the fans. I tried to imagine giving this book to my neighbor's son for Halloween and decided I'm going to have to clear it with his parents first. ...

    At first, I wasn't sure as it went way off canon, but this is a perfect book for kids. I love that it's inscribed to all the tough girls who are afraid of the dark, and when I read that part, I add boys, too, because Buffy isn't just for girls. That aside, I love the story of younger B...

    This book has two distinct audiences: young readers and Buffy fans. It has plenty to offer both! Buffy fans will see familiar characters and monsters. For the young readers, it introduces a tough young girl who, in spite of that, has an all too common fear: fear of the dark. It also...

    I didn't know what to expect from a Buffy picture book but I requested it from my library anyway. The references to the show and seeing The Scooby Gang as younger versions of themselves made my geeky heart pitter-patter. But I'm not sure my kids appreciated it much and it didn't sudden...

    This was a really cute book! The only reason it's not a 5 star is because it's not consistent with the Buffy-verse. Buffy did not move to Sunnydale till high school, so of course she wasn't there in elementary school, nor did she know Willow and Xander. I did really love the illustr...

    This takes the Buffy story during the TV series, but forgets there was movie (like many fans do). This time all of Sunnydale is there (Willow, Xander, Giles) but as if Buffy was an 8-year-old girl instead of the teen she was in the series. Actually it starts off as with Buffy "now" and...

    This book is so darn cute! I'm sure only fans of the show will really appreciate all the neat stuff about it, but it's still a nice children's book regardless about facing your fears. I loved the artwork and the fact that Buffy had every demon from the show in her closet. ...

    This is the cutest thing in the world. If you love Buffy you'll adore this and making squealy sounds as you read it and then want to buy numerous copies for all of the small people you know to share the Buffy joy. ...

    Okay, this book is adorable! Buffy was my absolute favourite show growing up and while this book may not be canon, there are enough nostalgic easter eggs to keep the grown-ups happy while reading the cute story to children. Oh, and the illustrations are beautiful too! ...

    This was cute in a very basic way. I'm not sure kids would appreciate it or understand the background if someone didn't explain to them about the older Buffy. It seems to be more for adults to reminisce about Buffy as a kid. I enjoyed it, but not sure kids will. If you ignore what you ...

    The pictures are great, but this book is a disaster. It's obviously designed for Buffy fans to purchase for tiny kids that they know, but fans will not find anything familiar except the character and place names (and depictions of the actors). Franchise or not, some stories aren't mean...

    The pictures are great and the story is kid friendly. But I wouldn't really recommend unless you are a huge Buffy fan, and it's mainly for you. The 'monsters' are sort of friendly looking, but they are all baddies from the show, so some are kind of horrifying. (Guy with no skin, anyone...

    This adorable children?s book imagines our intrepid TV slayer as if she?d come to Sunnydale as a little girl rather than a troubled teenager. We meet her good friends Xander and Willow as they have sleepovers, complete with popcorn and dancing. Xander pours over comic books while l...

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer illustrated by Kim Smith. Quirk Books, 2018. $19. 9781683690696 BUYING ADVISORY: EL (K-3), GIFT - ADVISABLE AUDIENCE APPEAL: HIGH When Buffy was only right, she was afraid of the sounds coming from her closet in the dark. With some teaching from Giles,...

    While I thought the book was charming and an adorable way to introduce the characters, I think the only group it is going to appeal to are the fans. I tried to imagine giving this book to my neighbor's son for Halloween and decided I'm going to have to clear it with his parents first. ...

    Not as cute of a book as I thought it would be, but still a cute book. 8 year old Buffy has a sleepover with her friends Willow and Xander (even thought she didn't know them when she was 8, but whatever, its a kids book). They hear strange noises coming from the closet. At first the...

    At first, I wasn't sure as it went way off canon, but this is a perfect book for kids. I love that it's inscribed to all the tough girls who are afraid of the dark, and when I read that part, I add boys, too, because Buffy isn't just for girls. That aside, I love the story of younger B...

    This book has two distinct audiences: young readers and Buffy fans. It has plenty to offer both! Buffy fans will see familiar characters and monsters. For the young readers, it introduces a tough young girl who, in spite of that, has an all too common fear: fear of the dark. It also...

    I didn't know what to expect from a Buffy picture book but I requested it from my library anyway. The references to the show and seeing The Scooby Gang as younger versions of themselves made my geeky heart pitter-patter. But I'm not sure my kids appreciated it much and it didn't sudden...

    This was a really cute book! The only reason it's not a 5 star is because it's not consistent with the Buffy-verse. Buffy did not move to Sunnydale till high school, so of course she wasn't there in elementary school, nor did she know Willow and Xander. I did really love the illustr...

    Age: Preschool-Kindergarten Emotions: Being brave Clearly suitable for moms and dads wanting to spread the Buffy love to their kids but also for the uninitiated. Told by her school librarian (who apparently worked at her elementary school, too), Buffy is informed to just "be brave....

    Of course it?s getting 5 stars!! This is the first kids book I?ve been genuinely excited about. Buffy is a show that has meant so much to me, so much so that it will forever be my all-time favourite tv show. When I first saw this book this morning at work, I teared up a bit (yes I?...

    As a cohost of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer podcast (Get Slayed, go listen to it on iTunes, Stitcher, and Googleplay!) I am often forced to explain Buffy to people who don't really know what it is. Sometimes those people are my little nieces. While this book doesn't follow the lo...

    Totally sweet, with lots of cameos (speaking of Sweet) and some subtle fourth-wall hijinx (uhh... why is Willow telling the reader how to pronounce Xander if he just introduced himself?) ? long-time fans will delightedly recognize props and locales, and first-time fans will discover ...

    The pictures are great and the story is kid friendly. But I wouldn't really recommend unless you are a huge Buffy fan, and it's mainly for you. The 'monsters' are sort of friendly looking, but they are all baddies from the show, so some are kind of horrifying. (Guy with no skin, anyone...

    While I thought the book was charming and an adorable way to introduce the characters, I think the only group it is going to appeal to are the fans. I tried to imagine giving this book to my neighbor's son for Halloween and decided I'm going to have to clear it with his parents first. ...

    Not as cute of a book as I thought it would be, but still a cute book. 8 year old Buffy has a sleepover with her friends Willow and Xander (even thought she didn't know them when she was 8, but whatever, its a kids book). They hear strange noises coming from the closet. At first the...

    At first, I wasn't sure as it went way off canon, but this is a perfect book for kids. I love that it's inscribed to all the tough girls who are afraid of the dark, and when I read that part, I add boys, too, because Buffy isn't just for girls. That aside, I love the story of younger B...

    This book has two distinct audiences: young readers and Buffy fans. It has plenty to offer both! Buffy fans will see familiar characters and monsters. For the young readers, it introduces a tough young girl who, in spite of that, has an all too common fear: fear of the dark. It also...

    I didn't know what to expect from a Buffy picture book but I requested it from my library anyway. The references to the show and seeing The Scooby Gang as younger versions of themselves made my geeky heart pitter-patter. But I'm not sure my kids appreciated it much and it didn't sudden...

    This was a really cute book! The only reason it's not a 5 star is because it's not consistent with the Buffy-verse. Buffy did not move to Sunnydale till high school, so of course she wasn't there in elementary school, nor did she know Willow and Xander. I did really love the illustr...

    Of course it?s getting 5 stars!! This is the first kids book I?ve been genuinely excited about. Buffy is a show that has meant so much to me, so much so that it will forever be my all-time favourite tv show. When I first saw this book this morning at work, I teared up a bit (yes I?...

    As a cohost of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer podcast (Get Slayed, go listen to it on iTunes, Stitcher, and Googleplay!) I am often forced to explain Buffy to people who don't really know what it is. Sometimes those people are my little nieces. While this book doesn't follow the lo...

    Totally sweet, with lots of cameos (speaking of Sweet) and some subtle fourth-wall hijinx (uhh... why is Willow telling the reader how to pronounce Xander if he just introduced himself?) ? long-time fans will delightedly recognize props and locales, and first-time fans will discover ...

    Baby Buffy faces closet monster. Cute. I like the little word bubble asides that explain how to pronounce "Giles" and "Xander." Purists may get tripped up on the fact that it does not exactly follow Buffy canon, seeing as she didn't move to Sunnydale or meet Willow and Xander un...

    I am a huge fan of Joss Whedon's work including buffy and firefly etc.This was a fun book with an interesting twist just as one would expect.Made me smile and I will cherish it ..if y'all could make a Firefly version I would be incredibly grateful oh and don't let Wash die this time lo...

    This book had the potential, considering its source material, to provide a really powerful story for a young girl (or boy) to read. While picture books are often simplified for younger readers to absorb, they should still tell a good story and this one really lacked for me. I'll admit,...

    The cutest picture book I've read in a while! ...

    UMMMMMM, So can we get this cartoon on Nick now!?!?! ...

    Joss Whedon?s Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series premiered in 1997 and has remained popular ever since. I came to it late and am still working my way through the DVD box set. It is my go to show when I need some light entertainment because watching a group of young people fighting th...

    Als jahrelanger und riesengroßer Buffy Fan könnt ihr auch sicherlich vorstellen, welche Freudensprünge ich gemacht habe, als ich dieses Schmuckstück hier in einer Buchhandlung in New York entdeckt habe. Ich wusste tatsächlich nicht, dass es existiert, doch das tut es: ein Buffy Bi...

    (Full review to come!) ...

    This takes the Buffy story during the TV series, but forgets there was movie (like many fans do). This time all of Sunnydale is there (Willow, Xander, Giles) but as if Buffy was an 8-year-old girl instead of the teen she was in the series. Actually it starts off as with Buffy "now" and...

    What most reviewers don?t remember is that this is a children?s book. They want to criticize the fact that Buffy didn?t know Willow or Xander as a child. Or the fact that all the monsters that try to kill Buffy just end up partying with her as a child. It?s a children?s book ...

    This book is so darn cute! I'm sure only fans of the show will really appreciate all the neat stuff about it, but it's still a nice children's book regardless about facing your fears. I loved the artwork and the fact that Buffy had every demon from the show in her closet. ...

    it was cute. i liked it. and there were lots of familiar faces for those of us who love the show ...

    This is the cutest thing in the world. If you love Buffy you'll adore this and making squealy sounds as you read it and then want to buy numerous copies for all of the small people you know to share the Buffy joy. ...

    Okay, this book is adorable! Buffy was my absolute favourite show growing up and while this book may not be canon, there are enough nostalgic easter eggs to keep the grown-ups happy while reading the cute story to children. Oh, and the illustrations are beautiful too! ...

    This was cute in a very basic way. I'm not sure kids would appreciate it or understand the background if someone didn't explain to them about the older Buffy. It seems to be more for adults to reminisce about Buffy as a kid. I enjoyed it, but not sure kids will. If you ignore what you ...

    The pictures are great, but this book is a disaster. It's obviously designed for Buffy fans to purchase for tiny kids that they know, but fans will not find anything familiar except the character and place names (and depictions of the actors). Franchise or not, some stories aren't mean...

    The pictures are great and the story is kid friendly. But I wouldn't really recommend unless you are a huge Buffy fan, and it's mainly for you. The 'monsters' are sort of friendly looking, but they are all baddies from the show, so some are kind of horrifying. (Guy with no skin, anyone...

    This adorable children?s book imagines our intrepid TV slayer as if she?d come to Sunnydale as a little girl rather than a troubled teenager. We meet her good friends Xander and Willow as they have sleepovers, complete with popcorn and dancing. Xander pours over comic books while l...

    While I thought the book was charming and an adorable way to introduce the characters, I think the only group it is going to appeal to are the fans. I tried to imagine giving this book to my neighbor's son for Halloween and decided I'm going to have to clear it with his parents first. ...

    Not as cute of a book as I thought it would be, but still a cute book. 8 year old Buffy has a sleepover with her friends Willow and Xander (even thought she didn't know them when she was 8, but whatever, its a kids book). They hear strange noises coming from the closet. At first the...

    At first, I wasn't sure as it went way off canon, but this is a perfect book for kids. I love that it's inscribed to all the tough girls who are afraid of the dark, and when I read that part, I add boys, too, because Buffy isn't just for girls. That aside, I love the story of younger B...

    This book has two distinct audiences: young readers and Buffy fans. It has plenty to offer both! Buffy fans will see familiar characters and monsters. For the young readers, it introduces a tough young girl who, in spite of that, has an all too common fear: fear of the dark. It also...

    I didn't know what to expect from a Buffy picture book but I requested it from my library anyway. The references to the show and seeing The Scooby Gang as younger versions of themselves made my geeky heart pitter-patter. But I'm not sure my kids appreciated it much and it didn't sudden...

    This was a really cute book! The only reason it's not a 5 star is because it's not consistent with the Buffy-verse. Buffy did not move to Sunnydale till high school, so of course she wasn't there in elementary school, nor did she know Willow and Xander. I did really love the illustr...

    Of course it?s getting 5 stars!! This is the first kids book I?ve been genuinely excited about. Buffy is a show that has meant so much to me, so much so that it will forever be my all-time favourite tv show. When I first saw this book this morning at work, I teared up a bit (yes I?...

    As a cohost of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer podcast (Get Slayed, go listen to it on iTunes, Stitcher, and Googleplay!) I am often forced to explain Buffy to people who don't really know what it is. Sometimes those people are my little nieces. While this book doesn't follow the lo...
