Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
These books for teachers are intended for use with the companion Picture This! Shakespeare series for students. Each resource book provides introductory activities, a group of activities for each act of the play, and activities to be completed after the play. Teachers may select which activities they want to use based on the ability level of students in their class. Each activity is easily reproducible for classroom use. All activities are designed to enhance speaking, reading, listening, and writing skills. Some activities encompass more than one skill, and all are clearly labeled. Some exercises are designed for individual response; most encourage group interaction. The editors suggest that the level of difficulty ranges from "less challenging to advanced," although the accompanying texts seem more appropriate for students who are reading below grade level. This also appears to be true of the resource books. An Answer Key is provided for only a few of the selections. For teachers looking to impart a rudimentary knowledge of Shakespeare to their students, this series should be considered. KLIATT Codes: P—Recommended. 1999, Barron's, 59p. illus., Ages adult.

Gr 5-12-- These three plays have been skillfully abridged by Garfield. His method is to retain Shakespeare's own language but to trim and cut either by giving only the early lines of longer passages, by editing scenes that involve secondary characters, or by cutting some scenes altogether. Twelfth Night and A Midsummer Night's Dream stand up well. All of the well-known lines and most of the poetry have been saved. Romeo and Juliet is more truncated, but even here not only the basic plot but also the sense of urgency of the two young people's love has been preserved. Unlike the prose retellings of the stories by Charles and Mary Lamb, Marchette Chute, and Bernard Miles, these are shortened versions of the plays themselves, complete with stage directions and waiting to be performed. Fortunate the students whose teachers are willing to become producers. Based on ``The Animated Tales as seen on HBO,'' there are lots of watercolor cartoon sketches throughout, which adds to the appeal for children. Each book begins with a short piece about the theatre in Shakespeare's time, about William Shakespeare, and about the play itself. Companion videos are available (Random House). --Ann Stell, Central Islip Public Library, NY
From Barnes & Noble
Buried treasure on a remote desert island; a ruthless peg-legged sea cook; and an intrepid young cabin boy. Few stories boast so irresistible a plot line or such unforgettable characters as Robert Louis Stevenson's beloved classic, Treasure Island. Illustrated with Alexander Mikhunushev's detailed full-color drawings, Philip Jennings's abridged edition uses Stevenson's own colorful, elegantly simple wording throughout to present all the excitement, mystery, and adventure of murderous plots at sea, surprise attacks on shore, and the ultimate contest between good and evil.
