Synopsis

Hamlet Band 18/Pearl by Jon Mayhew

A wonderfully creative retelling of Shakespeare's famous tale of revenge. When Hamlet's father unexpectedly dies and his mother quickly remarries his uncle, something doesn't feel right. A warning from a ghost sets in motion a terrifying investigation to uncover the truth. But at what cost? Pearl/Band 18 books offer fluent readers a complex, substantial text with challenging themes to facilitate sustained comprehension, bridging the gap between a reading programme and longer chapter books. Text type: Fiction from our literary heritage Curriculum links: English: fiction from the English literary heritage
