Stories from Shakespeare

Retold by Anna Claybourne (Usborne Publishing)

“A wonderful gift for children retelling some of Shakespeare’s best-known plays in story form. The ten tales range from A Midsummer Night’s Dream to Hamlet and include quotations, characters and context. Beautifully illustrated by Elena Temporin.”
The Guardian Christmas Book selection, 2004

“This wonderful book introduces young readers to the magnificent world of Shakespeare’s plays. Claybourne does an excellent job of translating the theatrical works into highly readable stories that can be enjoyed silently or as a family. In addition she includes details about his life and work, to enable children to imagine Elizabethan times. A splendid look at everything from Hamlet to A Midsummer Night’s Dream, this is not to be missed.”
