7 years +

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.

Nice gift -

I purchased this as a gift for my step-niece who is a bookworm. I haven't opened them but they are nicely presented. I'm hoping it will help give her a basic understanding of Shakespeare's stories so that when she's older and they start studying his work in school she won't struggle.

Amazing -

Great introduction to Shakespeares' masterpieces ! My 6-year-old loves them (especially the bloody ones) almost as much as I do! They make bed time stories a real treat for parents :-)
