Romeo and Juliet

The latest entry in a successful new series.
"Are you Romeo, and a Montague?"

This wonderfully contemporary retelling features enticing art on nearly every page and provides an excellent introduction to the story. Written by an outstanding scholar in simple, eloquent language, it will draw youngsters in with superb dialogue, and vivid description. The skillful blending of Shakespeare's own lines with modern language enhances children's involvement and comprehension. There's background on Shakespeare and the play; answers to FAQs such as “Isn’t Juliet too young to be married?” and a “Who's Who” of the characters. Young Reader's Shakespeare is a powerful visual and reading experience.

Review: The Young Reader's Shakespeare: Romeo & JulietUser Review - Adelaide Metzger - Goodreads
This edition was the first romeo and juliet i had read that wasn't school related. So great for teaching kids the story and characters and great for preparing them for reading the original text in highschool or junior high. Definitely recommend it to help encourage kids to like Shakespeare. Read full review
