              How to introduce kids to Shakespeare? Not just to the stories behind the plays, but to the richness of his language and the depth of his characters? That's the challenge that Leon Garfield, a wonderful writer for children himself, undertook to meet in his monumental and delightfu...l Shakespeare Stories. Here are twenty-one of the Bards's plays, presented in what is not a series of dry retellings, but rather a refashioning of the dramas as stories, in a way that remains true to the essential spirit of the original versions. Garfield has captured all the richness of character, plot, mood, and setting in Shakespeare's works, without resorting to simplification. Indeed, he deliberately retains much of Shakespeare's language, skillfully weaving it into his own prose so that reader is introduced to the flavor of the verse, as well as to the incidents of plot and the spectacle of the drama. Leon Garfield's Shakespeare Stories is a wonderful distillation--a celebration and a reminder of Shakesepeare's genius as a poet and dramatist.
