Bram Stoker
illustrated by Tudor Humphries 1997

This Eyewitness version of Bram Stoker's Dracula is filled with all kinds of extra tidbits. The abbreviated story is told through John Harker, Mina and Dr. Seward's diaries. John's travels to Transylvania in search of Count Dracula and Mina records her friend Lucy's odd and scary transformation. Then Dr. Seward along with Van Helsing must chase the monster down.

There are photographs and illustrations throughout that explain the history of the story, Stoker's inspiration for writing, and the aftermath of movies and books that followed.  Nice introduction to a classic horror story.


  1. I have not seen this book before, it's one I need to add to my collection!

  2. Ohhh! I am near finishing this fine classic and I would most definitely recommend this story to people of all ages. I would especially suggest it to children- because i am a child and, i indeed love it! ^-^
