DRACULA: THE OFFICIAL STOKER FAMILY EDITION truly takes the reading of classic literature to a whole new level. The app genuinely involves the reader, asking him or her to open letters seen sticking out between pages, strike matches to illuminate dark pages, and even smear his or her own "blood" upon the page. It's a uniquely interactive experience, even among the many imaginative books available on iPad. The inclusion of a classic movie and radio play based on the book (both presented in their entirety) make this more than just an ebook, too -- it's a full-fledged exploration and celebration of the historical impact of a piece of canonical literature.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
