KIRKUS REVIEW

To most people this is a wholly new book, for the routine lists of E. Nesbit's books have not included it and it has been out of print for years. Now reissued in new dress, with 12 full page illustrations in color, by Rolf Klep. For those who find Lamb's Tales of Shakespeare a bit prosy as an introduction, this should serve, particularly for younger children. The following plays are retold: A Winter's Tale, Romeo and Juliet, The Tempest, A Midsummer Night's Dream, As You Like It, Twelfth Night, Hamlet, Pericles, Cymbeline, The Taming of the Shrew, and King Lear.
