Publisher Description:

Who HQ brings you the stories behind the most beloved–and frightening!–characters of our time.

Find out how Dracula–a smooth-talking count with a dark secret–became the infamous creature we all know and fear.

From appearances in films and animated features to interpretations as a Muppet and breakfast cereal mascot, Dracula has been the inspiration for many other fictional vampires and is now an established figure in pop culture.

Created by Bram Stoker in his 1897 Gothic horror novel, Count Dracula is a nobleman who uses his powers as a vampire to dominate his victims. Even though Dracula didn’t succeed in the novel, the fictional character has lived on to dominate the real world as one of its most popular supernatural villains.

Author Michael Burgan explores Dracula’s mysterious origins in the historical figures who might have shaped the character, as well as the films and actors that cemented Dracula’s place in cinematic history.

Learning history is so much more than dry boring facts regurgitated to fill in worksheets and quizzes. Rather, learning history should be about understanding the people and events of people - people who are just like us, people who have experienced events that changed their life as they knew it.

Covering a variety of American history events that have changed our world, this well-written series will engage children and help them understand the impact of the events that occurred during each time period. Black and white illustrations, maps, and sixteen pages of authentic photos bring a real-life experience to our children. Timelines and a bibliography are also included to enhance learning. These would make wonderful read-aloud or engage children in self-reading. An appealing supplement to any history program or to keep learning fresh through the summer. PB. 106 pgs. ~Deanne
