LoveReading View on Dracula, retold by Chaz Brenchley

Can love, courage and goodness defeat the evil thirst of a vampire? In this fight to the bitter end, who will live, who will die, and who will be doomed to a living death?

From Shannon, aged 11:

'It's really scary when he goes in the chapel and finds Dracula looking younger, with bloody teeth.'

 

This and the other retellings by Real Reads are a fantastic way to introduce young children to some of the best-known and best-loved classics; beautifully presented and skilfully retold (and condensed – 64 pages in total) and illustrated, they are true to the original plot, capture something of the flavour and tone of the original work, while simplifying the narrative and dialogue. They’re primarily aimed for younger readers – 8-13 year olds but are also a great ‘quick fix’ for teenagers and adults.

 
Real Reads will develop a confidence and enthusiasm in some Classic literature and perhaps even to address the original, something that is nurtured in the ‘Taking Things Further’ section of every Real Read. For others, who might never have tackled the originals, Real Reads make accessible great stories, great characters and important moral debates which they might otherwise never have encountered.
