Lemmy's world is rocked when he loses his bedroom to his new baby brother. So he turns to Gran for comfort and a bedtime story. She tells the tale of Count Milkula, a selfish, noisy, milkcrazed creature from the monotonous mountains of Mamsylvania. Lemmy finds out that, like baby brothers, Mampires can't do anything for themselves. That's why looking after them is such an adventure. "There is something for both adults and children. There are lots of adult-focused references for the adult reader to enjoy. Phoenix's bright wacky cartoon-like illustrations match the very wacky story of the milk-crazed, sucking Count."
