The Young Reader's Shakespeare: Romeo & Juliet (Young Reader's Shakespeare)

The Young Reader's Shakespeare: Romeo & Juliet (Young Reader's Shakespeare) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The latest entry in a successful new series.

"Are you Romeo, and a Montague?"

"Neither, fair maid, if either you dislike."

Juliet smiled.

This wonderfully contemporary retelling features enticing art on nearly every page and provides an excellent introduction to the story. Written by an outstanding scholar in simple, eloquent language, it will draw youngsters in with superb dialogue, and vivid description. The skillful blending of Shakespeare's own lines with modern language enhances children's involvement and comprehension. There's background on Shakespeare and the play; answers to FAQs such as “Isnt Juliet too young to be married?” and a “Who's Who” of the characters. Young Reader's Shakespeare is a powerful visual and reading experience.
