I think that this book actually fared somewhat better than the Medieval Cats book by the same author/artist. This could be, perhaps, because I have a more than slight interest in Shakespeare, but I think it has more to do with the ability to give at least some of the paintings some character.

Finally some of the animals seem to show an emotion or feeling: "Kate" in the Taming of the Shrew; "Shylock" in the second Merchant of Venice picture; "Falstaff" in the Merry Wives of Windsor; and a few of the others.

The paintings are slightly more interesting but still somewhat dull. It barely offers more than a cursory glance through the book.
