From the tragedy of Macbeth to the humour of Much Ado About Nothing, this superb collection of sixteen paperbacks makes an excellent introduction to Shakespeare's books for younger readers. They can help remove the fear of Shakespearean language and help readers get to grips with what are essentially superbly crafted timeless tales.
The tales have been retold using accessible language and with the help of Tony Ross's engaging black-and-white illustrations, each play is vividly brought to life, allowing these culturally enriching stories to be shared with as wide an audience as possible.
Although these books are suitable for children aged 9 and over to enjoy independently, the themes they cover mean they may be considered more suitable for shared reading with younger children aged 7 plus.
