Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Young Readers Shakespeare returns, with another visually stunning and brilliantly rewritten version of one of the Bards classic plays. Julius Caesar has become such a part of our culture that many people even quote from it without realizing they are doing so: phrases such as “the dogs of war,” “its Greek to me,” and “the evil that men do” have become part of everyday English. With its powerful depiction of political struggle, assassination, and a country plunged into chaos, it tells a tale thats as timely today as when Shakespeare first dramatized it.  

Seamlessly blending Shakespeares beautiful lines with modern language, Adam McKeown eases children into the world of Imperial Rome. His well-chosen words, aided by Janet Hamlins striking and boldly colored paintings, introduce them to such unforgettable characters as the well-meaning Brutus and Cassius with his “lean and hungry look.” Plus, Renaissance scholar McKeown provides thought-provoking background on Shakespeare and the play, a “Whos Who” of the characters, and fascinating questions for young readers to ponder.
