      I personally owe a lot of my initial grasp and understanding of many of Shakespeare's plays to Serraillier's 'The Enchanted Island', and I have no doubt that many others do as well.I definitely do recommend this book for all those parents who wish to start engaging their children to literature at an early age. You will not believe that what you are reading is a Shakespeare play, as its language and themes are adapted accordingly. Serraillier adapted 11 of Shakespeare's most famous and outstandin [...]

      This was my first encounter with any kind of Shakespeare play or literature as a kid, and I found it surprisingly good. You get A Midsummer's Night Dream (one of my favourites that is rather witty, and not too overbearing or boring like Hamlet for instance), The Merchant of Venice, Hamlet (ugh), and the aforementioned The Enchanted Island,to mention here.

      i love love love this book. I had to read it in school and fell head over heels for it . It base on Shakespare"s stories. I particularly love "THE TAMING OF THE SHEW". I read it so many times the pages were torn and dirty HE HE HE you must read it! I still have the one i used in high school and i've been out mor than 15 years now.

      This was my introduction to Shakespeare. These retellings are very good they are not nearly as dry as the Lamb versions. I LOVE this book, because it can convey the brilliance of Shakespeare in a concise, yet very moving way. The highlight of the book is the retelling of King Lear. Simply fantastic!

      This was my first introduction to Shakespeare in the world of literature. I had seen Romeo and Juliet, of course, but I had never read anything by him. I loved this book. I hope schools continue to use it as a favourable and easy introduction to the works of William Shakespeare.
