This series contains fictional frighteners such as “Dr Faustus”, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” and Sherlock Holmes’ famous encounter with the “Hound of the Baskervilles”. It includes: terrifying true stories, including the cursed Aborigine Kinjika and the body-snatchers Burke and Hare. Dramatic illustrations will bring these ghastly characters vividly to life – but your own imagination will add horrors of its own! It is exciting reading for (brave) 8- to 12-year-olds. The fearful fictional figures of the blood-sucking vampire Count Dracula, Victor Frankenstein’s living-dead creation and the evil magic of an Egyptian mummy’s tomb are frightening enough… but the true stories that join them in this chilling collection are no less gruesome.
Vampires make for scary monsters and the most fearsome bloodsucker of all, could very well be, Dracula. Meet Count Dracula, the spooky but fascinating vampire from Transylvania! Join this spine-tingling adventure and discover the world of one of literature’s most famous villains in a fang-tastic way!
