Being a fan of Shakespeare is no surprise. This book is a triple threat: it is poetry, written by Shakespeare and then intertwines illustrations by Ms. Keegan. With such a colorful backdrop to accompany the poems, it brings a familiar enthusiasm to this portion of Shakespeare's work and easily ignites the imagination. You'll enjoy the artwork and you'll be transported back to that first moment you discovered William Shakespeare.

The illustrations make this the most beautiful copy of Shakespeare's Sonnets I've ever seen! A beautiful book to have and to give.

Too much Greek mythology junk to enjoy. I think I'm going to gut it and make a journal out of it, maybe save some of the illustrations which are really pretty.

Sigh... It was a nice idea.
