It’s a classic: Shakespeare’s Tales: Romeo and Juliet

by Samantha Newman

Arcturus Publishing has released many titles that retell classic stories. They are designed to entice young readers to expand their horizons. All of the retellings have short chapters, illustrations, and a commitment to including the chief elements of each work. This time, author Samantha Newman, takes on one of Shakespeare’s most well known stories. She does this using prose rather than verse. Ms Newman does a good job and, hopefully, will encourage some readers to explore the original play.

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!
