    " Nice retelling of some Shakespeare stories. It is written in a simple way so that you can get a good glimpse on the things Shakespeare produced. However, the Lamb siblings werent able to make a boring story like Hamlet, Othello or Romeo&Juliet interesting. So only 4 stars because I almost fell asleep at reading the latter mentioned stories. :P All in all I recommend it as an introduction to this overrated guy and his works. "

    " Originally published in 1807 this book is almost as classic as the plays by the bard himself. The Lamb's have taken 20 of Shakespeare's best plays and retold them in a more modern style. All character dialogue however, comes straight from the plays. A great way to become familiar with these masterpieces of literature before you tackle the original versions. Highly recommended for everyone who wants a better understanding of Shakespeare's great works in a readable modern format. "

    " Originally published in 1807, this book is Shakespeare made readable for kids. I finished The Tempest and the kids were in and out. My hope is not for my kids to understand Shakespeare right now but to be familiar with the language and the stories so that they can love the stories when they are older. I really struggle with Shakespeare and I want better for them. "

    " Charles and Mary Lamb definitely did us a service, by putting forth many of Shakespeare's play in a story format. Now that I have a grasp of the stories, I think it will be much easier to follow his actual plays. "
