    DescriptionOriginally written to be an "introduction to the study of Shakespeare," "Shakespeare for Children" is much more entertaining than that--some of Shakespeare's best-loved plays, comic and tragic, are retold in a clear and robust style. Charles and Mary Lamb introduce children to the magic of Shakespeare with these ten favorite tales. Although simplified, these stories don't underestimate young readers; they keep the complexity, twists of plot, and turns of fate found in the originals. And their literary quality has made them popular and sought-after ever since their first publication in 1807. Included in this edition are: --"The Tempest" --"A Midsummer Night's Dream" --"Much Ado About Nothing" --"King Lear" --"Macbeth" --"The Taming of the Shrew" --"Twelfth Night; or, What You Will" --"Romeo and Juliet" --"Hamlet, Prince of Denmark" --"Othello"

    Charles Lamb (1774-1834) was a nineteenth-century English poet and essayist whose best-known works "Essays of Elia" and "The Last Essays of Elia" include such titles as ""The Two Races of Men,"" ""Confessions of a Drunkard,"" and ""A Bachelor's Complaint of the Behaviour of Married People."" Mary Lamb (1764-1847) collaborated with her brother Charles on several books for children, including their famous children's collection "Tales from Shakespeare," published in 1807. British actress and narrator Josephine Bailey has won ten "AudioFile" Earphones Awards and a prestigious Audie Award, and "Publishers Weekly" named her Best Female Narrator in 2002. Simon Vance has recorded over four hundred audiobooks and has earned over twenty "AudioFile" Earphones Awards, including for his narration of "Scaramouche" by Rafael Sabatini. He is also the recipient of five coveted Audie Awards, including one for "The King's Speech" by Mark Logue and Peter Conradi, and he was named an "AudioFile" Best Voice of 2009.
