The tragic tale of Romeo and Juliet brought to life through the visual talents of illustrator Wendy Tan Shiau Wei. The epic, tragic love story reads like your favourite film on the page - as Death stubbornly hovers over the heads of our star-crossed lovers.

 is at the heart of this series, flinging wide the doors of literature for everyone to enter and understand. Including dyslexia-friendly design on every page, and encouraging readers to see themselves in iconic roles - casting spells, falling in love and winning duels.

Each graphic novel includes pitch-perfect illustrations for presenting the tragic, the romantic, the comedic and  the magical.

Every purchase you make supports the work of Shakespeare's Globe. Thank you!

The layout of the book makes it easier to understand because it has pictures and not just writing so you can see their facial expressions so if they are sad, they will be crying and if they are happy, they will be smiling.

I like how there are speech bubbles as you can see who is talking as it comes from them. 

I like the photos because you can see what they wore in the olden days.

The writing is easier to understand because it is in modern day writing and not in Shakespeare's confusing old-fashioned writing.  You can go to the back of the book and see the words Shakespeare invented and used in his plays.

It is a good book to read if you don't like reading that much writing and you prefer more pictures.

I enjoyed Romeo and Juliet because it had less writing and more pictures to help explain the story.
