5.0 out of 5 stars he weaves the original into his re-telling 15 May 2011
By sally tarbox TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
features: Much Ado About Nothing, Julius Caesar, Antony & Cleopatra, Measure For Measure, As You Like It, Cymbeline, Richard III, Comedy of Errors and Winter's Tale.
As in the first volume, Garfield introduces the younger reader to Shakespeare by a skilful weaving of phrases from the original into his re-telling. And the illustrations, particularly the colour plates, really bring the whole thing to life

5.0 out of 5 stars Classics for Kids 8 Jan 2010
My son is 9 yars old and has been studying Shakespeare for Social Studies. He went to see a kids production of Macbeth and became hooked. He loves this and the Shakespeare Stories 1 . Would recommend for secondary school age too.

This, the second Leon Garfield book on the works of Shakespeare, has proved invaluable in helping young people understand Shakespeare's plays and stories especially when read in conjunction with the actual plays.
