A Stage Full of Shakespeare Stories, by Angela McAllister, is a colorfully illustrated retelling of Shakespeare's plays aimed at young readers. Using contemporary prose, it offers a creative way to introduce children and tweens to Shakespeare's famous works. The blurb about this book says it can be enjoyed by children 5 and up, but I am recommending this one for middle grades and up (10 to 14). It includes a variety of his plays, both comedies and tragedies. Some are extremely well known (Romeo and Juliet) and others not as much (Much Ado About Nothing). There were several plays that I had to read in high school English and this would have been a nice supplement to the old English prose. Each retelling includes an opening quote from the bard himself, and a cast of characters, and consists of about 6 pages of prose. This retelling will get the main plot across as well as who the characters are.

That said, a contemporary retelling like this (even one done very well) - will never serve as a replacement for the plays themselves. This would make a great introduction to one of the plays and then the reader, their family, or a class could attend the play that is performed with young viewers in mind. I ended up enjoying this collection. My two favourites, MacBeth and King Lear were both represented. Even though the target audience is children, the author does not beat around the bush with any of the principal themes in these plays. The character's motives and personalities come across clear as day. The layout is eye-catching and the illustrations are unique and add much to the understanding of the story. This would make a great addition to an elementary school library. The publisher, Lincoln Children's Books, generously provided me with a copy of this book upon request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own. ( )

A Stage Full of Shakespeare Stories by Angela McAllister breaks down twelve of the Bard's most well-known plays- from Macbeth to Much Ado About Nothing- into stories middle-grade readers can appreciate. Distilling the essence and downplaying inherent violence, these tales are reimagined for a younger audience. I think this is a perfect way to introduce these timeless tales at an earlier age. My older cubs really enjoyed reading them, and the youngest enjoyed the artwork :) This would make a great classroom book, and the perfect addition to children's libraries.

***Many thanks to the Netgalley and Quarto Publishing for providing an egalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. ( )
