Shakespeare’s Tales: King Lear

by Samantha Newman, Ceej Rowland

Here is another in this publisher’s retellings of Shakespeare works for young readers. These are chapter books with illustrations that are suitable for elementary school aged kids.

This time, readers will meet three of the most famous sisters in tragedy. They are Regan, Goneril and Cordelia. Who loves their father, Lear, the most and who wants to take advantage of an old king? It is a story that kids could relate to and one that could lead to some excellent discussion. At the same time, maybe it will inspire its audience to engage with the dramatist’s many works.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Arcturus Publishing for this title.

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!
