now the second aspect of the book, the comic. the graphics are well drawn and i found myself enjoying the whole book. it recounts the story of count dracula (but explained through the perspective of a his lawyer). the comic blends well with the pop ups. the only drawback of the book is the rare disconnection of the plot throughout the whole book. this is partly because the author was trying to cramp a long story of count dracula into the limited pages of a pop up book (pop up books collectors will know that pop up books can only accommodate a couple of pages). thus, the author are forced to choose the main plot points of the story to tell in this book. another drawback of the book is the way the book is read. readers have to be careful to find out how to read the book chronologically (i.e. from left side of the pop up - TOP to BOTTOM; then move on to the main big pop up in the middle of the page; then finally the right side of the pop up - BOTTOM to TOP). this manner of reading was not explained, so some readers may get confused if they did not read in the correct order.
all in all, the book is still very entertaining and i would definitely recommend it! and besides, with the low price offered by amazon, this book is such a good bargain (good value for money)!
Though I love this pop-up book, it could have been better. Firstly, like another reviewer mentions, some of the pop-up figures do not open fully and do end up looking less scary than intended. Secondly, the side story panels (to the left and right) of the pop-up on each two-page spread are laid out in a somewhat confusing manner. It was only after some re-reading that I figured out that the side panels are to be read from the back to the front and not vice versa. Just a minor glitch but it still impacted the flow of my reading, hence only 4*. On the whole, I'd still recommend this to collectors of pop-up books, particularly those who are also fans of the horror classic. I have a couple of different editions of "Dracula", including some illustrated versions (like the one by Gorey) and this adds to my collection. I hope they come up with pop-ups of other horror classics like those based on Poe's works and also Shelley's Frankenstein.
Note: Due to some of the disturbing images, this may not be appropriate for young children.
