Summary

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
Available since: 12/01/2000.
Print length: 117 pages.
