Tales from Shakespeare: Julius Caesar by Timothy Knapman, Yaniv Shimony

Julius Caesar, a powerful and respected Roman, is warned by a fortune-teller that danger is ahead. With power often comes enemies, who's conspiring against Caesar and will they succeed? Follow Caesar in this tragic tale of power, war and ambition. 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
