Synopsis

Much Ado About Nothing for Kids by Lois Burdett, Denzel Washington

Shakespeare's Much Ado about Nothing delights in the verbal sparring between reluctant lovers, Beatrice and Benedick who are happily brought together at the end of the play by the schemes of their friends. And, no story is complete without one evil character, Don John, who unsuccessfully tries to tear apart the wedding plans of Hero and Claudio, the other lovers in this sparkling story. Rewritten in rhyming couplets for children to read, this version of the play is illustrated by the author's own pupils who have created wonderful drawings of the play. Their artistic interpretations are vivid evidence of her clever ability to bring Shakespeare's complex characters and intricate plots to life for young people.

Reviews

I highly recommend this book for elementary schools. Teachers, parents, and students will enjoy reading, or staging this play.--Rosemary Anderson Resource Links (10/01/2002)
