From Publishers Weekly

Mar 02, 1998 – Adults looking for a dramatically abridged version of Shakespeare's tragic love story with some lovely backdrops of Verona may find something to savor in Early's (Sleeping Beauty; William Tell) picture-book rendition. She gives a nod to several medieval fresco artists and to such Renaissance painters as Michelangelo and Botticelli, whose ornate patterns and borders may well be the inspiration for her paintings. A sharp attention to detail-- including the exquisite geometric designs of palace floors, elaborate period dress, authentic Verona streetscapes and the delicate strands of Juliet's golden tresses--distinguishes Early's art, but the lovers' faces are mask-like, and even the most dramatic of scenes appear to be static. Early's narrative paraphrases the action of this drama while showcasing some of the most legendary lines from the Bard's quill. But these clunky juxtapositions detract from Shakespeare's own words, as in this example: "Lord Capulet replied that Juliet was too young . Why not wait a little longer? `Let two more summers wither in their pride ere we may think her ripe to be a bride,' he entreated." Children will be better off waiting for the original--and adults better off returning to it. All ages.

Why can't there be an ipod/iphone version?

Great way to read Shakespeare

I love this version! You can read the original language but tap on a picture of Shakespeare for the line translated to modern English. It works really well since many of Shakespeare's puns and word play don't translate well so it is great to see the original context but when you are struggling to understand, the modern language helps a lot. It is not like a regular book since there are added buttons for modern translation. Each page is formatted to make it work. So you can't adjust the font size or anything. A bit challenging on my iPad Mini but worth it. And this would definitely not work on the smaller screen of an iPhone or iPod. I just wish they had more titles because I love reading Shakespeare this way!

This book is great

This book is really good and helpful but on page 129 there is "CLICK TO ADD TEXT” instead of the usual translation.
