Amazon.com Review Yes, the name is familiar. E. Nesbit, who died in 1924, gave us and . Now, with the publication of the Shakespeare stories she wrote (at their request) for her own children, adults and kids together can enjoy her fairy-tale prose in the retelling of 10 of Shakespeare's greatest stories. If you aren't sure you remember which daughter Lear visited first, who was traveling with Macbeth when he met those witches, or just why Rosalind was wandering around in the forest dressed like a boy--check here. Wonderful on their own, these retellings are also great preparation for any early theater or film excursion into these timeless plays. [The publishers recommend this book for ages 11 to adult, and they're right.] Review "10 retellings of Shakespeare's most famous plays.... These stories...capture the essential events and retain a little of the original wording. A good choice for young people seeking an introduction to the tales or for older folk looking for a refresher."--Booklist "In this new edition for ages 8 to 13, author E. Nesbit cuts through the burdensome complexity of Shakespeare's language with wit and humor and tells the stories at the core of the plays."--Curriculum Administrator "[An] accessible collection.... Adapts the Bard's plays as brief, lively stories."--Publishers Weekly
