By Naomi Miller
Routledge – 2003 – 344 pages
This is a collection of original essays about how Shakespeare and how his plays are increasingly being used as a means of furthering literacy, language arts, creative and dramatic learning for children in and out of the classroom. It is divided into three sections comprising essays by well-known children's book authors, literary scholars, and teachers, respectively, who approach the subject from a wide range of perspectives.
"…a rich collection of informative essays on how Shakespeare can be and has been "reimagined" for children. This collection has something for everyone interested in the adaptation of Shakespeare for children, whether a writer, an academic or a practitioner. Highly recommended." -- A.F. Winstead, Our Lady of the Lake UniversityChoice
