Readers are given keys to some of the world's most lavish and secretive abodes when they pick up the Cool Castles and Palaces series (8 titles). Each book focuses on one royal dwelling, offering a snapshot of its history, inhabitants, layout, function today, and, of course, copious photos. Inviting layouts utilize large illustrations (either photographs or a simple diagram of a floor plan or estate grounds), descriptive captions, and a paragraph or two of large-sized text, placed against a colorful background. Using a sensational opening, Dracula's Castle quickly debunks the vampiric reputation of Romania's Bran Castle but notes how it inspired Dracula author Bram Stoker's description of his fictional Count's home. Each volume is divided into three chapters and concludes with at-a-glance facts and a geographic map. Textual repetition and bolded glossary terms help support independent readingâguided reading tips and activities are also available to educatorsâresulting in a well-structured but fun entry into nonfiction. Grades 2-4. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
