    The acclaimed children’s author shares vibrant retellings of the Bard’s timeless tales in this classic, illustrated collection for young readers.   As both a writer and a mother, E. Nesbit wanted an engaging way to share the great works of Shakespeare with children. In The Children’s Shakespeare, she adapted eleven of his plays—including Hamlet, Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and others—into accessible stories that creatively capture all the essential elements.  The Children’s Shakespeare offers an ideal introduction to these works, simply told yet preserving their wit, humor, emotion, and drama. In E. Nesbit's gifted hands, these stories emerge with all the charm and grace of the very best fairy tales. Written in modern English and each no more than ten pages in length, the eleven plays featured in this volume afford children the opportunity to discover the magic of Shakespeare for themselves

    Three children, forced to remain at school during the holidays, go in search of adventure. What they find is a magic castle straight out of a fairy tale, complete with an enchanted princess at the center of a maze. Or is it? The castle turns out to be just a country estate, and the princess is only the housekeeper's niece, playing at dressing up. But the magic ring she shows them proves -- to her surprise and horror -- to really be magic. Soon they are caught in an adventure where statues come alive, lost lovers are reunited, and wishes can be granted -- but always for a price. (Summary by Peter Eastman)
