Enter the realm of Count Dracula! Bram Stoker’s 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 count’s 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 Stoker’s classic.
