The Lovereading4Kids comment
With Shakespeare in the spotlight, this book finds an unusual and effective way to spark children’s interest in his plays. It retells ten of the most popular in cartoon strip, each accompanied by a brief synopsis of the action. A bright busy double page illustration of a scene from the play follows and children are challenged, Where’s Wally style, to find the main characters and indeed Shakespeare himself amongst the crowds. The illustrations are very appealing and catch the mood of the plays very well: Messina, the setting for Much Ado About Nothing, is a real Italian town with turrets, domes and courtyards; Macbeth’s castle is set in a very grey, dreich Scottish hillside; Prospero’s island is clearly a magical place under skies tinged pink. A fun way to make Shakespeare’s plays familiar and enticing to children. ~ Andrea Reece

Spot Will Shakespeare and a selection of his colorful characters from 10 of his best-loved plays! First, get to know each play by reading a snappy synopsis of the plot and meeting the main characters.

Each play is introduced with a snappy synopsis of the plot, where you meet the characters to hunt for in the beautifully illustrated scenes, offering a fun and novel way in for kids to Shakespeare’s timeless writing. Award-winning children’s author Anna Claybourne summarises the plays into an easily digestible 300 words.
