Synopsis

Orchard Book of Classic Shakespeare Stories by Andrew Matthews

Eight of Shakespeare's best-loved plays, including 'Romeo and Juliet', 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', 'Hamlet' and 'Macbeth', are retold in this truly classic collection. Andrew Matthews' lively retellings capture all the drama and excitement of the original plays and Angela Barrett's beautiful illustrations bring the well-known characters and their stories gloriously to life.

Just right for children... a superb introduction to Shakespeare Parents in Touch

About the Author

Angela Barrett completed a Masters Degree at the Royal College of Art, London and was taught by Quentin Blake. Upon leaving, Angela turned almost immediately to illustration as a career. Her first book was The King, The Cat and The Fiddle, for A&C Black, which was runner up in the Mother Goose Award in 1984. Since then, Angela has illustrated titles and designed book covers for well over 30 titles. Recognition of her work came with the Smarties Prize in 1988 for Can It Be True?, the WH Smith Illustration Award in 1991 for The Hidden House and being shortlisted for the Kurt Maschler Award in 1984 and 1989 and the Kate Greenaway Medal in 1993 for Beware, Beware! The Orchard Book of Stories from the Ballet and The Orchard Book of Shakespeare Stories are exquisitely illustrated by Angela and are regarded as definitive collections. Angela has become a leading figure in illustration and her unique talent is recognised internationally. Her artwork regularly features in exhibitions and is highly collectable. Angela lives in London.
