Synopsis

Tales from Shakespeare: Twelfth Night by Timothy Knapman

Twins, Viola and Sebastian, become separated after a shipwreck in Illyria and soon confusion and mischief unfolds! Packed with funny mix-ups, mistaken identities and muddled love, this humorous tale will make you laugh aloud. QED has chosen four plays to continue the successful Tales from Shakespeare series. These titles serve as the perfect introduction into the works of Shakespeare. The plays are retold as stories using clear and contemporary language, whilst each title keeps its originality by including key quotations from the original text. Lively illustrations bring these popular plays to life and will be sure to captivate the imagination and interest of young readers. The four new titles to continue the Tales From Shakespeare series include: Hamlet - 978-1-78493-000-4 Twelfth Night - 978-1-78493-002-8 Julius Caesar - 978-1-78493-006-6 Henry V - 978-1-78493-004-2

Reviews

What sets these adaptations apart from other recent attempts is Knapman's ability to capture small but significant moments of emotional connection between characters, such as Viola's empathy with Olivia upon discovering that they have both lost a brother or Horatio's concern over Hamlet's depression. -- Kate Harvey Children's Books Ireland
