5.0 out of 5 stars Imagination runs riot, 8 May 2008
This review is from: Bravo, Mr. William Shakespeare! (Paperback)
The format of this is a little different from most of of Marcia Wiliams' treatment of famous tales. Though done with all the author's accustomed energy and verve, the usual format of narrative strip cartoons supplemented by the characters' speech bubbles has a third dimension provided by comments from the "audience" at the Globe Theatre, London.

This keeps the young reader on his/her toes and provides a super intro to Shakespeare. The illustrations are interesting in that the author has chosen a distinctive colour palette for each play - thus As You Like It is done predominantly in oranges and blues, Antony and Cleo in orange and turquoise, Twelfth Night in pink, green and plum, The Merchant of Venice in cherry and grey etc.

No child could fail to be stimulated by these tales, and could not want to pursue them at at deeper level when older.
