A fantastic compilation: A Stage Full of Shakespeare Stories by McAllister

I give this book five stars, something that I do not do often.  This is a wonderful Shakespearean compilation in prose form with bright and engaging illustrations.  Included are twelve of the Bard’s best known works, both tragedies and comedies.  Each tale starts with a quote and a pictorial depiction of the main characters that quickly engage the reader.  The stories are well told and surprisingly comprehensive.  Elementary school children could read these on their own while they could be read aloud to younger children,  much in the way that fairy tales are shared.  As an adult, I also appreciated the clarity in the presentation of these dramas.  This book is a keeper!  Thank you for this one NetGalley.

  1. Any book that introduces children to Shakespeare is amazing! I find so many times kids have a negative association with Shakespeare, and yet because my parents introduced his writing to me at a young age, I loved his plays. This book looks so good and important!
