I bought this book so that I could quickly learn the plot of Shakepeare's The Tempest prior to studying this book in our drama class. It fullfilled what I needed as an adult, but it was presented in such a fun way, with great illustrations, that it would definitely also inspire children.

I'm sure to Shakespeare lovers this is a great book. I however found it dull. I'm trying to get inspired for the new term but this did nothing at all to convince me that I should be reading it. Give it a go if you feel you want to. Disappointed.

My granddaughter loves this story and it really helps her to understand Shakespeare. She reads it over and over again.

Very useful for the SEN pupils I work with, gave them good understanding of the play. Pupils liked the children's drawings.
