Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet like you’ve never seen it – or read it – before! Classics in Graphics: Romeo and Juliet has been adapted by expert authors, Steve Skidmore and Steve Barlow, and brought to life through the visual talents of illustrator Wendy Tan Shiau Wei. The epic, tragic love story reads like your favourite film on the page – as Death stubbornly hovers over the heads of our star-crossed lovers.
Inclusion is at the heart of this series, flinging wide the doors of literature for everyone to enter and understand. Including dyslexia-friendly design on every page, and encouraging readers to see themselves in iconic roles – casting spells, falling in love and winning duels.

– snappy simplified text presenting Shakespeare’s themes clearly
– introductory materials to help set the scene and context of each well-known story
– heaps of extra material at the back to keep the learning and fun going, including an exploration of themes in the play, the language, Shakespeare’s inspirations, the publication and performance of the play in history, a time line of Shakespeare’s life and works, and much more!
