More About the Author

Leon Garfield was born and educated in Brighton, England. His art studies were interrupted by the Second World War, during which he served in the Army Medical Corps. After the war he worked as a hospital laboratory technician until he gave this up to devote himself to writing.

His books have been widely translated and have won many international and British literary awards. In 1981 he was nominated for the pretigious Hans Christian Andersen Award.

He was married with one daughter and lived in North London, the setting for many of his novels, until his death in 1996.

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

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
