A collection of ten of Shakespeare’s best loved plays retold in an entertaining, accessible style by the master storyteller Michael Morpurgo. Using the language of today, this is the perfect introduction to the works of the Bard as Morpurgo remains true to the originals but uses his own interpretation to weave contemporary tales of Macbeth, The Taming of the Shrew, Romeo & Juliet, The Tempest, Twelfth Night, Henry V, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Hamlet, King Lear and The Winter’s Tale. 

Sir Michael Morpurgo OBE is one of Britain’s best loved children’s authors. He has written over 150 books, has served as Children’s Laureate, and has won many prizes, including the Eleanor Farjeon Lifetime Achievement Award. Each story is illustrated by ten different artists, each with a special connection to Michael.
