I love this format to introduce children to William Shakespear's plays. The wording and the pictures make it easier to understand.

A delightful rendition of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night for kids. The pictures are wonderful. The author weaves summary with direct quotations from the plays. Although the text is over my kids's heads (they are 4 & 5), still, they have requested we read it several times.

So, you want to read the story of Shakespeare's play "Twelfth Night". You are looking for something fun and visual but not too dumbed down.

The pictures are well done. The story is limited to the essential, so it's easy to follow and concise. Though I liked it mostly because it reminded me of the 1996 movie directed by Trevor Nunn.

We are planning on seeing the Oregon Shakespeare production of this play this summer. Coville's retelling of this play was humorous and fun. We enjoyed it and look forward to reading more of his works.

I don't like the artwork in this book as well as I do the others, but it is still a great adaptation.
