Hamlet

Age range: 

Hamlet is miserable after the death of his father, but when the ghost of his father appears and reveals that he was murdered, Hamlet decides to seek his revenge...Will he succeed? Step inside for a tragic tale of deceit and revenge. QED has chosen four plays to continue the successful Tales from Shakespeare series. These titles serve as the perfect introduction into the works of Shakespeare. The plays are retold as stories using clear and contemporary language, whilst each title keeps its originality by including key quotations from the original text. Lively illustrations bring these popular plays to life and will be sure to captivate the imagination and interest of young readers.

Reviews: 

"very enjoyable and great"

The Guardian Children's

These versions are retold in modern English but - and I really like this - they include key quotations from the original, in highlighted boxes. The retellings, despite being in modern English, manage to capture the feel of Shakespeare's language and they read aloud excellently; the attractive drawings give readers a feel for the plays and their characters
