Praise

“In these lively and evocative pages a child will hear Shakespeare’s poetry set in prose that will lay the groundwork for many a future enchanted evening at the theater.” –Meghan Cox Gurdon, The Wall Street Journal

“Leon Garfield’s performance in Shakespeare Stories is masterly. The Merchant of Venice, The Taming of the Shrew, Twelfth Night, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream best reveal the virtuosity Mr. Garfield has developed in many years of writing dozens of children’s books and historical novels. In Mr. Garfield’s deft narratives the laughter is the same that one finds in the plays, but so is the uneasiness. He gets the balances right.” —D. J. R. Bruckner, The New York Times

“Here is an alternative to yellow study guides, one in which explication is available in the graceful prose. Garfield’s seamless movement between his own descriptive language and Shakespeare’s has never worked better.” —Sally Margolis, School Library Journal

“The most accessible introduction to the Bard ever.” —Woman & Home
