A Midsummer Night's Dream - Children's Illustrated
"If we shadows have offended, Think but this, and all is mended..."
Retold for young readers, Shakespeare's mischievous take on love run amok in fairyland meets its match in luminous illustrations by Jane Ray.
There's trouble in the Fairy Kingdom. King Oberon wants to teach Queen Titania a lesson. Things heat up when four young nobles arrive in the enchanted forest from Athens. They're all in love, but with the wrong person! It's up to Puck, a playful sprite who isn't above a bit of mischief after dark, to do his Oberon's bidding, trick Queen Titania, and deal with the foolish lovers. With a certain potion at his disposal, what could go wrong? Retold from Puck's point of view in simple, accessible language, peppered with quotes from Shakespeare's original play, and brought to life in Jane Ray's lush, moonlit illustrations, this introduction to the Bard's most enchanting comedy hints at the richness of his work while being a lovely keepsake edition in its own right.
