Teachers who are wondering what to give their young readers to satisfy the common core non-fiction requirements need to get to know Terry Deary. I teach Shakespeare to my middle-schoolers using this book, and even my emerging readers love it. The bard is fun and irreverent again - just as he should be. Also check out Deary's Horrible Histories.
This was the lightest Shakespeare book I read on the beach -- a typical Terry Deary book for kids with lots of jokes, with historical accuracy sometimes taking a bottom shelf. There are some clever approaches to explaining the plays, however, and one or two brilliant, fun quizzes that I will definitely use in the classroom.
This book isn't really a book it's like a bunch of William Shakespeares plays put to together. I thought it was okay. The only thing I liked about it was that everytime you finish reading a play, it gives you these cool facts about it.

These stories are good versions of shakespeare because Deary makes them interesting for kids. he even makes them funny. My favourite was a midsummer night's dream.
