By Shakespeare, Appignanesi, & Vieceli Now presenting Manga Shakespeare - the Bard's greatest plays in an accessible, lively format for a new generation of readers!
Hamlet is one of Shakespeare's most well-known plays, and this exciting new re-telling provides young readers an innovative introduction to "the melancholy Dane." Hamlet is your typical angst-ridden teen - he doesn't know how to deal with his responsibilities, how to treat his girlfriend, or how to react to his father's death. He has no one to trust, and he even acts crazy so adults will leave him alone. Romeo and Juliet is ideally suited for the manga format - it has teenage heroes, scheming and villainous adults, heartbreaking tragedy, and the ultimate romantic plot about star-crossed lovers. Romeo, a Montague, and Juliet, a Capulet, fall deeply in love, and they refuse to let their parents' age-old feud get in their way. When Romeo is banished from their town, a series of mistakes and misunderstandings, along with their families' mutual hatred, finally manages to end their love.
