How ?Bout the Power of Flight
The Little Vampires dream of flying fiercely, of swooping down on silent wings upon unsuspecting blood oranges, and of doing menacing loop-de-loops. Unfortunately for them, their wings are as useful for flight as a waffle iron is good for fighting wrinkles in your pants.
Some Little Vampires managed to turn into bats once. A run-in with a fly swatter discouraged them from trying that again. But that incident did not quell their desire to become airborne, so they constantly seek ways to defy gravity. Even if those ways involve pestering The Cat more than usual.
