Synopsis

Tales from Shakespeare... Henry V by Timothy Knapman

What fate awaits Henry V and his people? Henry, newly crowned King of England, has decided he deserves to be king of France too...so war against France begins. Follow Henry's difficult journey in this dramatic tale of battle, triumph and loss. 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 are: 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

'These modern re-tellings use contemporary language to make the text enjoyable and accessible for children; it's a good way to encourage them to enjoy Shakespeare but to get the full beauty of his plays, they do need to be encouraged to read the originals... The attractive bindings make these excellent books to collect.'
