Now when so many adults are clueless concerning our cultural landmarks, this book brings certain Shakespeare classics down to kid-level. This first exposure may lure the five-to-10 [years] crowd to check out Shakespeare in more detail in another five years.
Book introduces Shakespeare in comic-book format. For kids below eleven years, unrelieved blocks of print may sap the electronic-games drenched kid's determination to press on. Pictures offer that otherwise missing encouragement.
Nice present. Given to others' kids, the gift itself leaves the impressed other parents a whiff of the giver's unexpectedly high cultural level.
