Mayhem ahead: Shakespeare’s Tales: Love’s Labour’s Lost

by Samantha Newman

The publisher of this title is now turning attention to Shakespeare in a series of titles for young readers. There will be sixteen in all. Hopefully these retellings will inspire kids to enjoy Shakespeare and to later move on to the originals.

Here, the play is the comedy, Love’s Labour’s Lost. The story is told in prose and is illustrated. The essence of the story is definitely here. It begins with Ferdinand wanting to form an academy with friends. Their goal is to study for three years and NOT to fall in love or have contact with the opposite sex. How will that go? Adults may remember but kids may enjoy finding out.

This title provides a good introduction to the bard. It is geared towards children seven and older according to the publisher.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Arcturus Publishing for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
