Much-loved storyteller Michael Morpurgo, creator of such popular stories as War Horse and Kensuke’s Kingdom, invites a new generation of readers to discover the magic of Shakespeare.

From Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet to A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Winter’s Tale, this is the perfect introduction to the Bard. In his own words, “I thought it was important for young people to know these stories, to read them told in a language they will readily understand, and in a way they can enjoy so that they might be all the more likely to want to read the great plays of Shakespeare and go to see them on stage.”
