About William Shakespeare’s a Midsummer Night’s Dream
One night two young couples run into an enchanted forest in an attempt to escape their problems. But these four humans do not realize that the forest is filled with fairies and hobgoblins who love making mischief. When Oberon, the Fairy King, and his loyal hobgoblin servant, Puck, intervene in human affairs, the fate of these young couples is magically and hilariously transformed. Like a classic fairy tale, this retelling of William Shakespeare’s most beloved comedy is perfect for older readers who will find much to treasure and for younger readers who will love hearing the story read aloud.
