Simple but works.
Classic narrators for each play - all great.
Although not always 100% true to the original Shakespeare plot, enough of it is kept, just simplified. The characters are the same and the main plot the same. The main quotes are kept but again simplified or just shortened to the key famous parts. My son, aged 11, is reading A Midsummer Night's Dream at school and this was a great addition for him to understand the plot and solidify the main characters in one sitting. I have read a better children's version of As You Like It though. I thought this was too simplified. However is probably better for younger children and as a first introduction to Shakespeare.
