Everyone knows that Buffy Summers was a tough and resourceful teen, but what was she like as a child? Slayer fans finally get an answer in Kim Smith’s latest picture book, which features an eight-year-old Buffy confronting her fear of the dark. She’s joined by Willow and Xander as they “investigate strange sounds coming from the closet, seek advice from their school librarian Giles, and encounter everyone’s favorite Buffyverse monsters.”

The fifth book in Smith’s Pop Classics series—we loved her X-Files one last year—boasts the most adorable version of Joss Whedon’s Sunnydale we’ve ever seen. We’re excited to share illustrations from the book below, which take place during a sleepover at Buffy’s house and in the school library the following morning.

Smith’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer is geared toward readers ages four to eight, but adults will also be captivated by the story (and its surprise ending). It’s available now from Quirk Books.
