MEDIA REVIEWS
A sumptuous publication, illustrated in full colour on every page, with pictures of the characters set at the beginning of each story. The prose is accessible, and the stories race along. * The Guardian *
A great book for every child's collection. * Parents in Touch Website *
Even though all of the plays are written so that young readers can understand them, some of the more famous lines from Shakespeare's works can still be found. I am thoroughly impressed! * Bookworm Mama *
With their usual creative flair and beautiful pictures, Usborne have recently published Illustrated Shakespeare which includes retellings of Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Hamlet, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet and the Tempest as well as a short biography of the Bard himself - the perfect way to open up Key Stage 2 children to his wonderful plays. * Family Interest *
This is another super book in the Usborne Illustrated Stories series... a marvellous introduction to Shakespeare. Each play is introduced with a summary (and pictures) of the characters, so they can be followed throughout the story. Twelfth Night, Macbeth, The Tempest, Hamlet, Midsummer Night's Dream and Romeo and Juliet are included. The use of extracts from the original work gives children a feel for Shakespeare's language without being daunting. A great book for every child's collection. * Parents in Touch Website *
