Midsummer like you have never read it before: fun and easy to understand.
NOW JUST RELEASED: HAMLET! Also for kids of all ages who want to enjoy and loosely understand Shakespeare's play.
What you will get:
This mini-melodramatic masterpiece is sure to be a doorway for your child to love all the classics. Shakespeare is difficult enough in class or watching on stage, let alone trying to teach the stories to children, but as the author's mantra states in the book, "there is no better way to learn than to have fun!"
Kids who have read this have also eventually purchased the entire Shakespeare works, and have completed 'hero' reports on Shakespeare at school. Guaranteed to have you coming back for more!

Even though the sequence of events to a very complex play was done well, the characters were oversimplified and dumbed-down. I needed the script for my Jr. High students and felt that I needed to give them credit for having more insight and taste for comedy than this adaptation provided. The one positive thing that came of buying this script is that it prompted me to write my very own adaptation of which I am very proud to share with my students and our audience.
