The story of the notorious vampire Count Dracula, lord of the undead, who rises from his coffin at night to suck the blood of the living is, undoubtedly, the stuff of nightmares. A lunatic asylum, a bleak Transylvanian castle, an ancient cemetery...these are the dark backgrounds to the even darker deeds portrayed in this most bloodcurdling of tales.About the Author:
Jan Needle has twice been shortlisted for the Medal. "I've always loved Dracula," he says. "I've tried to extract the brilliant core story from this complex book and glue young readers to their seats." Jan lives in Oldham. Gary Blythe's first children's picture book The Whales' Song (written by Dyan Sheldon), won the Kate Greenaway Medal. Dracula by Bram Stoker is his favourite book.
