Introducing Shakespeare (7 - 11 years)

£123 Save £22.83

This curated selection of books is a great way to introduce junior readers to Shakespeare and his works. It includes Leon Garfield's highly acclaimed retellings, which integrate Shakespeare's language in the narrative. These stories read aloud well and are perfect for whole class sessions. We have also chosen some excellent retellings from the Orchard and Marcia Williams' popular comic format versions, as well as novels that have been inspired by Shakespeare's life and  times. Non-fiction includes reference material and a stunning illustrated dictionary from linguist David Crystal and his actor son, Ben Crystal.

This selection caters for children of different levels of reading attainment and reading interests.
