Review from an 11 year old: "If you like Romeo & Juliet, but have trouble understanding the book...then you'll love this book...can be easily interpreted...read...for pleasure...or can be produced as play by a class...Following each scene, there are footnotes which help explain unfamiliar words. This is really helpful & a good vocabulary builder. There are pictures that accompany each scene. These are helpful in bringing the play to life...The price is very affordable for this well written book. Discussion questions are at the end of the book. These are designed to make you think. I would recommend this book..."-- Patricia Williams, Age 11, reviewed for Creative Kids Magazine. Recommended for 3rd grade on up. Teacher's Manual available.
