    Shakespeare's MACBETH has been magically transformed into a highly engaging graphic novel produced by Classical Comics. <BR/><BR/>The quick text edition offers a simplified version of the Scottish tale by using as few words as possible on the page. The lack of Shakespearean dialogue does not deter from the original tale; in fact, it enhances the play. <BR/><BR/>Students who struggle with Shakespeare's language will be relieved to see this edition. They can read the original MACBETH while using the graphic novel as a supplemental tool. Teachers may wish to use these novels as a refresher before diving into a unit on Shakespeare. <BR/><BR/>The artistry in this graphic novel is also amazing! The characters are drawn well with nice, clean lines. The panels are extremely colorful, making the pictures appear to jump off the page. <BR/><BR/>The Dramatis Personae page provides thumbnail drawings for each character, which will help readers identify the players. The Contents Page breaks the story down into acts and scenes, thereby allowing readers to find specific parts within the play. <BR/><BR/>I am very impressed with the work Classical Comics is producing. As a teacher, I know how difficult it is to get students to read Shakespeare. These novels will make my job much easier in the future!
