Praise for Manga Shakespeare

ALA Best Book for Young Adults

ALA Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers

 

“Reluctant readers who appreciate manga and who would not think of picking up the work of Shakespeare are sure to gravitate toward these titles. Even if the text puts them off, they will be drawn to the illustrations. These adaptations would make wonderful additions to any school or public librarys manga collection.” —VOYA

 

“Refreshingly clear, this adaptation is recommended for all libraries serving teens.” —Kirkus Reviews

 

“This fresh new way of looking at a classic will draw new readers to Shakespeare, hopefully to discover that his plays are really quite entertaining.” —YAbookscentral.com

 

Shakespeares most commonly studied plays, now the latest additions to the innovative Manga Shakespeare series

 

“Double double, toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble . . .” So say the eerie trio of witches in Shakespeares Macbeth, a story full of ghosts, witches, bloody ambition, and nonstop action. After Macbeth hears the witches prophecy that he will be king, he will stop at nothing to make it so. Vividly adapted using Shakespeares own words in the fast-paced and immediate style of manga, Macbeth is the perfect addition to the Manga Shakespeare series—ideal for students and manga fans alike.

Synopsis:

The Merchant of Venice, one of the Bard's most enduring plays, explores themes of forgiveness, prejudice, and fairness, all of which remain vital topics today. In the Manga Shakespeare version, the setting and themes of the play take on new meaning as adapted by the artists guiding the series. Whether readers are fans of the Bard or of manga, this is a story that will captivate and engage, even after four hundred years.

Synopsis:

In Much Ado About Nothing, Beatrice and Benedick trade insults and fall in love in the sunny Italian court of the Duke—but the Dukes brother has devious plans to ruin the happy mood. Manga readers can now enjoy the wit and drama of these plays firsthand.
