Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up–The enduring strength of The Tempest lies in Shakespeare's poetic language, and this abridgment offers richly illustrated sound bites of some of its most famous lines. The theatrical qualities of manga are well suited to the romantic drama and fairy-tale elements of the play, moving the story forward while enhancing the meaning of the poetry. This art form lends itself well to the images of Ariel's invisibility to all but Prospero, Antonio and Sebastian plotting the deaths of Alonso and Gonzolo as they circle the sleeping bodies, Miranda's large eyes weeping as Ferdinand declares his love, and Prospero's finger drying her tears while saying, Fair encounter of two most rare affections! Heavens rain grace on that which breeds between them. This adaptation follows the series format: the book is read from left to right and the cast of characters appears up front. Both the introduction and a map showing the location of major events help readers follow the plot. One obstacle is the abrupt change of scenes with no visual clue that the story has shifted to another scene. Back matter includes a plot summary and brief biography of Shakespeare. This adaptation would be useful both as an introduction to the play and as a companion piece for classroom study of it, using images to illuminate the Bard's eloquent poetry.–Barbara M. Moon, Suffolk Cooperative Library System, Bellport, NY

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My 12 year old is obsessed with these books. They all have different artists which she loves and SHE IS READING SHAKESPEARE!!!!! What can I say. A wonderful way to make Shakespeare accessible to a young audience. Now my 11 and 9 year old are into them too and we now have all of them.
The only reason I am giving them a 4 and not a 5 is the bindings are not the best and i have bought one twice as the pages started falling out. I know they are left out open and face down and read a LOT, but so are a lot of other books of ours and they are still intact.
