The Lovereading4Kids comment
This graphic novel uses the original Shakespearean text.
"Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more; Or close the wall up with our English dead!" This historic tale of war and peace between England and France in the reign of Henry V is presented just as Shakespeare intended…only much more exciting! See and experience the Battle of Agincourt as never before - and fully appreciate a decisive chapter in the history of the realm.
This text was awarded the Silver Medal at the 2008 Independent Publisher Awards in America.

Henry V, Original Text by William Shakespeare
This is a fun way of getting into the stories. Plays are not meant to be read but to be seen. The illustrations in these books are an easy way of following what is going on. The genius of Shakespeare is in the language but for some students understanding it can be a struggle. It will be useful for teachers to have three different versions of the text"
- Ian McNeilly, director of the National Association for the Teaching of English
"What a marvellous way to bring Shakespeare to new audiences and venues. Bridging 400 years with a graphic pen is brilliant."
- Barbara Romer, founder of The New Globe Theater, New York
