Graphic Shakespeare Set 1 - School Library Journal

Each book opens with a list of characters and a description of the setting. Background information, a short synopsis, famous phrases from the play, and a biographical sketch of Shakespeare are also included. . . . Each slim volume is written in large-sized font and includes full-color illustrations with 2-5 panels per page. All dialogue has been extracted from the original play, which exposes readers to Shakespearean language. Explanatory text boxes judiciously placed throughout the panels enhance readers’ understanding. . . . With substantial front and back matter, these adaptations seem best suited for instructional purposes. . .[and] will serve as introductions to the Bard for older, reluctant readers. Hamlet and King Lear were done in a straightforward style and have rich, dramatic colors. . . [and] a limited color palette for A Midsummer Night’s Dream suits the moonlight setting. This adaptation’s inclusion of Puck’s rhyming introduction to the characters is a delightful addition.
