Edith Nesbit, the author of Beautiful Stories from Shakespeare, felt passionately that young children should enjoy Shakespeare's great works. She set about to retell his plays in a language that children would not only understand, but delight in. This is a marvelous introduction to the works of Shakespeare that ALL will enjoy.
