Description

Perhaps the best-known of Shakespeare's tragedies, Hamlet has all the ingredients for a gripping story: revenge and power, familial love and betrayal, dramatic sword fights, dark spooky scenes. Once again Lois Burdett has woven her own brand of magic by transforming Shakespeare's complex verse into simple rhyming couplets. She has created a version of Hamlet especially for children, even as young as seven, and one that readers of all ages will enjoy. The author's own pupils have created wonderful drawings of Hamlet to illustrate her fluid rhymes. Their artistic interpretations are vivid evidence of her clever ability to bring Shakespeare's complex characters and intricate plots to life for young people.show more
