Media Reviews
Short, brisk, highly readable retellings which make good sense as stories in their own right. As such, they will readily persuade the junior school age-group that Shakespeare himself has lively stories to tell. These little books can be warmly recommended as a first introduction to Shakespeare. * Books for Keeps *
