Tales from Shakespeare: Puffin Clothbound Classics by Charles Lamb
Puffin Clothbound Classics is a series of much-loved stories from classic children's literature, brought together by Puffin Books in beautiful hardback volumes.
These tales are the perfect introduction to Shakespeare's greatest plays. Renowned writers and essayists of the 18th century, siblings Charles and Mary Lamb vividly bring to life the power of Hamlet and Othello, the fun of As You Like It and the drama of Pericles. Their accessible writing never loses the feel of Shakespeare's beautiful language and humanity, and convey all of his wit and wisdom. These tales are classic literature in their own right.
'First published in 1807, and never out of print, these stories, adapted from 20 of Shakespeare's plays, are clever and powerful summaries designed to provide children with enough plot and characterisation to allow them to understand the plays themselves when they later see or read the authentic versions.' - Independent
