If you want a stylish film version of 'Romeo and Juliet' that is faithful to the text, look no further than this masterpiece by Zeffirelli. I have used it to teach the play to GCSE students for years and, almost without fail, students end up showing a preference for this version of the play as opposed to other superficially more glamorous alternatives like the Baz Luhrmann version. When watched with the subtitles that are on the DVD, it is a fantastic study aid too.

Beautiful to look at, easy to follow and well-cast - this is a must for students of 'Romeo and Juliet'.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful book, 24 Nov 2012
This is a wonderful book for so many reasons. First of all, it is beautifully presented. The pictures are nicely drawn and it is fun to see how the picture behind contributes to the previous picture through a gap left in a portion of each animal.

Black and white is supposed to be a particularly useful colour scheme for babies developmentally and we certainly sensed that our baby was able to focus well on the pictures.

Additionally, it provides tactile stimulation as the rubbery pages are interesting to touch (and chew on).

To top it all it's obviously great fun to play the mule (ha ha) with your child as you make the expected animal noises to accompany each… Read more
