This book would probably be better titled Shakespeare Made Fun or Shakespeare Made Amusing. Twelve of "Gentle Will's" plays (including Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, and Othello) are presented comic-book style with mice (or rats, or really badly-drawn dogs) portraying the characters. Each play offers an introduction and a short quiz at the end. My one reservation with this book is that the cartoons are all plot summary, with some theme and character analysis, but none of Shakespeare's original language. Consequently, I would use it as an introduction or a wrap-up to the Shakespeare unit, but not as a substitute for reading the plays themselves.
