Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Enter the realm of Count Dracula! Bram Stokers masterpiece is adapted for a younger audience with all the sinister intrigue of the original novel.

English solicitor Jonathan Harker is on a journey to see a new client—the enigmatic Count Dracula. But when the unfortunate Harker finds himself held prisoner in the counts remote castle, he must use all his faculties to escape. With the help of Professor Van Helsing, can he prevent the evil that has been unleashed from destroying his world? Illuminated in all its gothic majesty through the vivid artwork of Anne Yvonne Gilbert, this rich new edition is adapted for younger readers but retains the mystery and shocking twists of Bram Stokers classic.

Review:

"This illustrated adaptation of Bram Stoker's work trades the epistolary nature of the original for a condensed, third-person narration, supplemented by selections from Jonathan Harker's journal entries and from John Seward's memoirs. Hitting the major plot points, like Jonathan's arrival at Dracula's castle and Lucy's frightening transformation, Raven retains much of the subtle terror of Jonathan's imprisonment, while providing Mina with more volition (' ‘Tonight we end this,' added Mina firmly'). Readers will likely be chilled by Gilbert's evocative ink and colored pencil images and drawn to the enigmatic Count, with his long, blond hair and violet eyes. A lavish and accessible retelling. Ages 12 — up. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
