"Feast your eyeballs on this bedazzling book and start your children on a lifelong love of Shakespeare." The Times "It's Shakespeare for children - but in a radical new form . the book is illustrated by Emily Sutton, who has supplied more than 150 ingeniously detailed watercolour drawings . it's a rare delight to find a children's edition that leaves Shakespeare's language intact." The Daily Telegraph , 5 stars "What a lovely treasure! A wonderful introduction to Shakespeare's timeless plays." Greg Jenner, You're Dead to Me The first-ever illustrated children's edition of William Shakespeare's First Folio, published to celebrate its 400th anniversary - a sumptuous gift book to treasure for ever. Published in association with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, Shakespeare's Plays is the first-ever illustrated children's edition of the First Folio, one of the greatest books ever published which celebrates its 400th anniversary in 2023. The sumptuously illustrated book, with luminous and detailed artwork by Emily Sutton, includes all 36 plays in the original volume, in the same order. The plays preserve Shakespeare's original dramatic language, but have been skillfully abridged by Dr Anjna Chouhan so they can be performed by a minimum of eight children in under twenty minutes. The perfect accessible introduction to Shakespeare in his own words for a child, this is a very special gift book that will be returned to time and time again.
