It's now over 400 years since the Bard died and his work still remains just as relevant and compelling today. Boasting 16 of William Shakespeare's most popular and enduring plays, this collection contains rewritten versions of all his most well-known tales.

From the tragedy of Macbeth to the humour of Much Ado About Nothing, this superb collection of paperbacks makes an excellent introduction to Shakespeare for younger readers.

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.

Format: paperback
Please note that 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 children aged 7 plus.

To be or not to be -

These books are fantastic my daughter loves them she can't wait to read the next when she finishes one, the collection has been adapted for kids but the stories are true to the original. Money well spent, best price and super quick delivery.

My Grandchildren's books -

I bought this set of books for my grandchildren as an introduction to Shakespeare. What an amazing bargain. They are really good, too. An easy read and good for an adult who had little knowledge of Shakespeare. Definitely recommend them.
