In truth I don't have a basis for comparison, but I found this to be a remarkably good collection. I think the choices were wise (Midsummer Night's Dream, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Twelfth Night, Hamlet, Antony and Cleopatra, Henry V, and The Tempest). The stories are told in an enjoyable and engaging way. The author wisely doesn't even attempt to mimic Shakespearean prose, but a direct quote from the selected play is included at the beginning and end of each story. The illustrations by Angela Barrett are lovely. What's not to like?
