Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up-An introduction to the plots of 20 of Shakespeare's plays by Charles and Mary Lamb. Narrated by Flo Gibson.
Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc.
--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

Conquering the distaste for knowledge and learning which so frequently opposes itself to the instruction of children; and we do not scruple to say that, unless perhaps we except Robinson Crusoe, these volumes claim the very first place, and stand unique, without rival or competitor.

-- "Critical Review, 1807"

The Lambs' Tales is the granddaddy of all Cliff Notes and may be the only one that qualifies in its own right as a work of literature. These narrative retellings of 18 of Shakespeare's plays don't attempt to reproduce the plays' structure or dramatic qualities, but recast the stories into narrative form with freedom and dexterity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Extremely small print
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 29, 2020
These pages are extremely hard to read because the font is really small, maybe 8 point, with not much white space on the page. It seems they were trying to fit as much as they could on each page in order to save paper. I haven't begun trying to read it yet, but it is seems it will be an unpleasant experience due to the difficulty keeping concentration on the small print. I may just return it.
