“Provides useful background material about Shakespeare’s life and the history of the time.”

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!
Includes simple retellings of six of the plays and also provides useful background material about Shakespeare’s life and the history of the time.
A wonderful collection.
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.
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.

Wonderful Literature for Children too!
My 4 year old son is loving this book so very much. The stories are fascinating and the illustrations are captivating. Every night he would like me to read at least 2 chapters. So I do. It is a lovely introduction to classic literature. I am grateful!

I never write reviews, but had to say this... My girls love this book! My six year old "demands" that I read a few chapters to her every night. I wish Shakespeare was introduced to me like this when I was younger. This is an absolutely awesome book and a great addition to our library. Thanks Usborne!
