A fantastic way to introduce classic stories to very young children. The story is still a little grim in places and there is vocabulary that will need to be explained, so it's not suitable for young independent readers. However, it's a wonderful book to read to a young child of 5 plus. Plenty of delightful illustrations to keep them entranced. A delight to impart such wonderful stories at such a young age!

We bought this as our six year old son was running out of bedtime story books. He loves the stories in this book (which are fairly basic re-tellings of the basic plays, without too much depth), particularly Hamlet and Macbeth, and has asked for a BluRay of Hamlet...although I'm a bit dubious about how that will turn out!

Some of the plots were a bit difficult for him to grasp first time round, but re-reading made the stories a lot easier to follow. I would heartily recommend this book to anyone wanting their children to get into Shakespeare, or even just as a different type of bedtime story.

It's pretty well written, my 4 years old does pay attention to all the stories in its full length, understand them and likes them. It makes me really happy. The illustrations are nice.

The illustrations are good, and the stories are well told. This was a present for my 8 year old granddaughter, to help her to enjoy the plays when she is older.

Character introductions before each story are very helpful for young children to understand the plot. It is a stretch for my 3, almost 4 year old daughter, but she loves it! Beautiful illustrations.

I'm so sad that I stroke the cover. Feels smooth and the stories are great!
