Shakespeare was written for men and women and in words that little folks cannot understand. Hence this volume was created to reproduce the entertaining stories contained in the plays of Shakespeare, in a form so simple that children can understand and enjoy them, and so that the youngest readers may not stumble in pronouncing any unfamiliar names to be met with in the stories, the editor has prepared and included in the volume a Pronouncing Vocabulary of Difficult Names. There is also a collection of Shakespearean Quotations, classified in alphabetical order, illustrative of the wisdom and genius of the world's greatest dramatist, and colorful illustrations accompany each work.
