Synopsis

Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet by Michael Rosen, William Shakespeare

This most famous of love stories is uniquely presented in picture book form for children. The tale is told scene by scene in a simple lively style, with dialogue reproducing Shakespeare's own words so that the most celebrated passages of the play are retained in their original form.

Reviews

Rosen's light touch weaves in clarity: and Ray's illustrations glint with the magic of fairy dust. A cluster of light, moon, hands, stars, Shakespeare and the tragic passion of young love make the book shimmer like an old painting. The Independent Review If this doesn't whet a child's appetite for Shakespeare, I don't know what will. Birmingham Post
