Dracula is one of the few horror books to be honored by inclusion in the Norton Critical Edition series. (The others are Frankenstein, The Turn of the Screw, Heart of Darkness, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and The Metamorphosis.) This 100th-anniversary edition includes not only the complete authoritative text of the novel with illuminating footnotes, but also four contextual essays, five reviews from the time of publication, five articles on dramatic and film variations, and seven selections from literary and academic criticism. Nina Auerbach of the University of Pennsylvania (author of Our Vampires, Ourselves) and horror scholar David J. Skal (author of Hollywood Gothic, The Monster Show, and Screams of Reason) are the editors of the volume. Especially fascinating are excerpts from materials that Bram Stoker consulted in his research for the book, and his working papers over the several years he was composing it. The selection of criticism includes essays on how Dracula deals with female sexuality, gender inversion, homoerotic elements, and Victorian fears of "reverse colonization" by politically turbulent Transylvania. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
From School Library Journal
Grade 7 Up?A naive young Englishman travels to Transylvania to do business with a client, Count Dracula. After showing his true and terrifying colors, Dracula boards a ship for England in search of new, fresh blood. Unexplained disasters begin to occur in the streets of London before the mystery and the evil doer are finally put to rest. Told in a series of news reports from eyewitness observers to writers of personal diaries, this has a ring of believability that counterbalances nicely with Dracula's too-macabre-to-be-true exploits. An array of voices from talented actors makes for interesting variety. The generous use of sound effects, from train whistles to creaking doors, adds further atmosphere. Lovers of mysteries and horror will find rousing entertainment in this version of a classic tale.?Carol Katz, Harrison Public Library, NY

“There lay Lucy, seemingly just as we had seen her the night before her funeral. She was, if possible, more radiantly beautiful than ever; and I could not believe that she was dead. The lips were red, nay redder than before; and on the cheeks was a delicate bloom.”
I can’t imagine what it must have been like to read Dracula in 1897.
Bram Stoker was far ahead of his time with this novel.
The story is reduced to a couple of sentences or paragraphs on each two page spread. It gives an interesting look into the story but you might want to pick up the book to read along with as you color. Some of the pictures are a little macabre and might not be appropriate for children without guidance from an adult.
I have Chellie Carroll's coloring book on “Pride and Prejudice” and I have enjoyed coloring that book. While the subject matter is wildly different, Ms. Carroll's artwork is similarly skilled in both books.
This is what I found while coloring in this book and testing my coloring medium of the paper.
More than 90 Storybook designs pages (including two pages of the folklore of “fangs” done in an old-fashioned design concept with an interesting font.)
Designs are printed on both sides of the page
Paper is heavyweight, white, slightly smooth, and non-perforated.
Sewn Binding which makes it easy to remove several pages at a time by snipping a few threads. If you remove pages in this fashion, you won't cut away essential portions of the designs.
Designs merge into the binding area.
Some designs spread across two pages with essential elements merging into the binding area.
My copy of the book lined up well on the two-page designs with only a couple being slightly off.
I could get the book to lay fairly flat by breaking (or creasing) the spine.
Alcohol-based markers bleed through slightly on this paper.
Water based marker, gel pens and India ink pens did not bleed through this paper or leave shadows on the back of the page.
Colored pencils did well with this paper. I was able to color with light or heavy pigment, layer and blend (using a blender stick) with both oil and wax-based pencils.
