Description

Shakespeare made accessible for young readers!

Come wend your way along London’s Thames River to the Globe Theatre, where seven favorite Shakespearean plays are being performed! Marcia Williams brings to life ROMEO AND JULIET, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, JULIUS CAESAR, HAMLET, MACBETH, THE WINTER'S TALE, and THE TEMPESTt, making liberal use of Shakespeare’s rich dialogue. With the help of her signature comic-strip style, the Bard’s 400-year-old masterworks become as relevant to young readers today as they were to theatergoers way back then.




About the Author
Marcia Williams has retold many classics for children, including CHARLES DICKENS AND FRIENDS; TALES FROM SHAKESPEARE; GREEK MYTHS FOR YOUNG CHILDREN; THE ILIAD AND THE ODYSSEY; and BRAVO, MR. WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE! Of this book, she says, "Working on the Old Testament has been a joy. The tales are so rich, it is always possible to find something new within them. Yet, at the same time, they have all the comfort of the familiar." She lives in London.
