Reviews

'Rosen's light touch weaves in clarity: and Ray's illustrations glint with the magic of fairy dust. A cluster of light, moon, hands, stars, Shakespeare and the tragic passion of young love make the book shimmer like an old painting.' The Independent Review

'If this doesn't whet a child's appetite for Shakespeare, I don't know what will.' Birmingham Post
