A Shakespeare Story: A Midsummer Night's Dream

A Shakespeare Story: A Midsummer Night's Dream

The course of true love never did run smooth… A magical retelling of Hermia, Helen, Demetrius and Lysander’s classic story – and of the impish fairy Puck, who meddles in their tangled web of love with hilarious consequences… With notes on Shakespeare and the Globe Theatre, and Love and Magic in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The tales have been retold using accessible language and with the help of Tony Ross’s engaging black-and-white illustrations, each play is vividly brought to life allowing these culturally enriching stories to be shared with as wide an audience as possible.

Reviews

An excellent introduction to Shakespeare for the junior reader.
The School Librarian
Andrew Matthews admirably conveys the beauty and power of the original plays. The text is full of the rhythms of spoken language and begs to be read aloud.
