The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shakespeare’s gripping tragedy of Ancient Rome – the assassination and the turmoil that followed - is vividly and faithfully retold in graphic novel format. It is part of a series of illustrated literary classics retold for young readers, which is particularly popular with reluctant readers.
With specially commissioned, full-colour, dramatic artwork it faithfully represents set-pieces from Shakepeare’s tragedy, and brings excitement and atmosphere to this stirring tale. There are speech bubbles that complement the main text to emphasise and enhance the retelling and a running glossary at the foot of each page helps young readers with any challenging vocabulary without disrupting their reading experience. There is even some useful end matter, which provides information about the author, the historical background to the period in which the author lived and a timeline of world events that places the work in its historical context.
Julius Caesar - retold by Michael Ford by William Shakespeare
Julius Caesar is the most important man in Rome. But many Romans fear that his power is too great, and that he plans to make himself king. A plot is hatching against him. Will Brutus and Mark Antony join the conspiracy against their friend for the good of Rome?
