Reviews

An excellent introduction to Shakespeare for the junior reader.
The School Librarian
Andrew Matthews admirably conveys the beauty and power of the original plays. The text is full of the rhythms of spoken language and begs to be read aloud.
Junior Education
One of a series of retellings for young children. Tony Ross's illustrations add greatly to children's appreciation and understanding.
