Vampires never die—and Dracula is back in an exciting new format that allows children to experience this spine-tingling tale as never before!
This illustrated retelling includes all the highlights of Stoker’s chilling novel: Jonathan Harker’s first, near-deadly meeting with the count; poor Lucy’s death at Dracula’s hands; and the thrilling, nail-biting chase across Romania as Harker and Dr. Van Helsing attempt to destroy the vampire…once and for all.
As they read, children will enjoy an interactive experience, including an exploding pop-up, a pull-out guide to Transylvania, and a removable map of Dracula’s castle; pull tabs; a board game; and sidebars on how to spot, capture, and kill a vampire.
Nicola L. Robinson’s evocative art fully captures the story’s dark and gothic atmosphere.
