The Legend of Dracula (Famous Legends)

 
9781482427325: The Legend of Dracula (Famous Legends)

Dracula, the blood-thirsty Transylvanian who terrorized England, was a character in an 1897 horror novel. However, the author, Bram Stoker, based his infamous creature on a real-life prince from the 1400s named Vlad III. Though Vlad wasn't a vampire, he was known for some very gory exploits. Legends of vampires stretch back even further than this. Thrilled readers will devour this legend, its possible sources, and details about its contribution to popular culture. Spooky photographs and illustrations set the mood and enhance the spine-tingling text.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-4-Simple retellings threaded with explanation present the folklore roots of these assorted literary works. The examinations vary somewhat in approach, but all offer material for book reports or class discussion. King Arthur's entire life story, told in short sentences, introduces Merlin, Guinevere, Lancelot, Galahad, and others, with text boxes providing additional information. These boxes appear in all of the books in this set, but most of the others blend history and background material. Washington Irving's two short stories are presented differently. Sleepy Hollow focuses on the story in question, while Rip Van Winkle sums up the tale and then compares it to an earlier German account that also includes a biography of Irving. An introduction to the Brothers Grimm, life in the Middle Ages, and modern tourist attractions in Hamelin, Germany, accompany the Pied Piper's tale. Dracula is the star here: the book clearly explains the character's place among other vampires, the content of Bram Stoker's novel, the possible parallel with Vlad Dracula of Wallachia, and his continuing popular appeal. VERDICT Good material for literature lessons.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
