Vespasian and the Blood Suckers
"I'm overdue, Joe."
With those fateful words, my man's night off went flyin' straight into the toilet bowl. Vespasian Jones is the only guy I know who could rack up fifty cold, hard American dollars of library fines. He's also the only guy I know who would run around town at midnight in a costume helmet. And I didn't even mention the blood-suckin' worms. Yeesh. More
It's midnight in La Vega, California, and Vespasian Jones has an overdue library book.
Well it wasn't like Mrs. Sherman didn't warn him. If he doesn't get that thing in the drop-box by 8 AM, his cumulative library fines will top fifty bucks ($50.25, to be exact) and his library card will be revoked for life. There's just one problem: the entire town has been overrun by a horde of shark-toothed, blood-sucking worms. Did I mention that they are giant worms? Arm-sized, really. How is no one else noticing this? As if all of that wasn't bad enough, he keeps running into his newly-ex-girlfriend everywhere. Yikes.
Vespasian and his best friend Tick Wisenheimer suit up for battle, fighting through guts, gore, and blood. As long as they've got their trusty Louisville Slugger and a life-time supply of Pizza Tots(tm), they should be just fine. To the library!
