Summary

Robert Swindells's A Midsummer Night's Dream is set in a very modern-day Yorkshire. Theseus, the neighbourhood tycoon is getting married. Bottom and his mates are roped into putting on a play for the wedding because, well, there's nothing much to do when you're on the dole. But, before the wedding, there are young lovers with problems to resolve ... and a drop of magic and mischief in the mix! 
 
The Shakespeare Today series captures the magic of Shakespeare's text and sets it in an accessible and contemporary style.

    Steve is an excited new member of a local village. Though he still has a lot to learn about the world of Minecraft, he is doing his best to fit in with his new neighbours in what he hopes will be his permanent home. It does not take long for Steve to discover that the village has a bigger problem, a zombie problem. 
    With the local zombie population more organized than any monster group he has ever encountered, Steve will do his best to help the village become a safe place to live. As he makes new friends and learns new skills, Steve discovers that protecting the village will be much more difficult than he thought. 
    Follow Steve's journey as he attempts to survive in this new world. From upgrading his small home to a castle, establishing his own farm, and attempting to befriend the villagers, there is always something new and exciting in store for Steve. Will he be able to keep the zombies out of the village? Or will all of his efforts start a war that he must be prepared to fight?
