This series gives young readers the chance to discover Shakespeare for themselves.

The stories come originally from the highly successful gift collection The Orchard Book of Shakespeare Stories. Also included are useful notes on the themes within the stories and a background to the Globe theatre.

Andrew Matthews's vibrant and accessible retellings, coupled with expressive and funny illustrations by Tony Ross, provide an introduction to this important part of our cultural heritage in the most enjoyable way.

Perfect for school use as the National Curriculum specifies that two Shakespeare stories are studied as part of English Literary Heritage KS3 and 4. Also optional at KS2. The notes highlighting themes in the specific stories will help to focus discussions.
Industry Reviews

'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.' Junior Education

"The retelling of the plays is done with great individual style." The Bookseller
