Reader Reviews

Awesome!
I never write reviews, but had to say this... My girls love this book! My six year old "demands" that I read a few chapters to her every night. I wish Shakespeare was introduced to me like this when I was younger. This is an absolutely awesome book and a great addition to our library. Thanks Usborne!

Press & Blog Reviews

This is another super book in the Usborne Illustrated Stories series... a marvellous introduction to Shakespeare. Each play is introduced with a summary (and pictures) of the characters, so they can be followed throughout the story. Twelfth Night, Macbeth, The Tempest, Hamlet, Midsummer Night's Dream and Romeo and Juliet are included. The use of extracts from the original work gives children a feel for Shakespeare's language without being daunting. A great book for every child's collection.

With their usual creative flair and beautiful pictures, Usborne have recently published Illustrated Shakespeare which includes retellings of Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Hamlet, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet and the Tempest as well as a short biography of the Bard himself – the perfect way to open up Key Stage 2 children to his wonderful plays.
