Reviews

'Williams’ rather gentler versions are still appealing and useful.' The School Librarian

'Marcia Williams retells fourteen of Shakespeare's plays in her trademark witty, accessible style.' The Bookseller Children's Buyer's Guide

'Marcia Williams has to be one of the best, if not the best, re-tellers of classics around and I always look forward to a new book from her. […] Marcia brings Shakespeare's stories vividly to life. The retellings are superbly set off by plenty of Marcia Williams' detailed and engaging pictures. A beautiful book which is perfect to encourage children to appreciate Shakespeare and his plays.'
