Synopsis

Graphic Horror by Bram Stoker, Robert Louis Stevenson, Mary Shelley

Graphic Horror is a collection of illustrated classics retold as exciting and fast-paced graphic novels for young readers, a format which is particularly popular with reluctant readers. Enjoy reading Dracula, Frankenstein and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde in this engaging format. Straightforward narratives in modern English accompany key excerpts from the original novels, and difficult words and phrases are explained as they occur. A running glossary at the foot of each page helps young readers with any challenging vocabulary without disrupting their reading experience. Specially commissioned, full-colour, dramatic artwork faithfully respresents set-pieces from the plays, and brings excitement and atmosphere to the tales. Speech bubbles work with the main text to emphasise and enhance the retelling.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
