Reviews for Midsummer Night's Dream

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2010 Spring
This freely adapted prose retelling of Shakespeare's comedy includes some lines from the actual play. The text focuses on the broadest elements of the tale's humor and emphasizes them with comical fairy-heavy digital illustrations, some awkwardly posed. Short chapters complete the effort to make the work easily understandable to young audiences, though much is lost in terms of language and subtlety. Copyright 2010 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
