TALES FROM SHAKESPEARE by Marcia Williams. This delightful, vividly illustrated retelling of seven of Shakespeare's plays is the perfect introduction for children ages 6--12. It is wonderful preparation for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's 2011 production of Julius Caesar and the 2012 production of Romeo and Juliet. The author/illustrator invites you to attend performances at the Globe Theatre, witness the drama on stage and listen to riotous remarks from the audience. The colorful comic strip illustrations will delight readers of all ages and make the Bard accessible to the youngest ones. The first of two volumes, this book contains Julius Caesar, Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Hamlet, The Tempest and The Winter's Tale. Oversized paper edition 10" x 12.25" 39 pp.
