In this charming collectable book, there is a selection of Charles and Wendy Lamb's classic prose retellings of Shakespeare's plays that are beautifully illustrated by acclaimed artist Joelle Jolivet.

Jolivet re-imagines the princes, royalty, fools and villains from Shakespeare's world as colourful, striking characters. From Much Ado About Nothing to Macbeth , each story features pages of illustrations that are both irreverent and wholly appropriate. Enclosed in a die-cut slipcase, the book is the perfect gift for Shakespeare fans at any age.
