‘The Shakespeare Stories’ written by Andrew Matthews and illustrated by Tony Ross.
The only Shakespeare story I knew before reading these books was Romeo and Juliet- and that was because I studied it for my GCSE’S when I was 16!!!!! So I thought I’d read the children’s versions.
Although many of the short 16 versions end tragically there were a few which ended happily ? My favourite was The Tempest. I’m so glad I read these books it’s given me a brief incite to the wonderful tales that were told and acted out such a long time ago!
I would recommend these books perhaps to year 5 and 6.
