10.09.14 New for autumn: Short, Sharp Shakespeare!

Coming soon… a new series, Short, Sharp Shakespeare, published by Wayland and illustrated with fab cartoons by the brilliant Tom Morgan-Jones. Macbeth and A Midsummer Night’s Dream are out first on October 9th, followed by Romeo and Juliet, The Tempest, Hamlet and Much Ado About Nothing. Each book has a detailed modern retelling and 16 pages of useful notes and discussion at the end.

Watch out for more Shakespeare-related shenanigans in the run-up to celebrations for the 400th anniversary of his death, in 2016.
