Stories from Shakespeare

Stories from Shakespeare - I'm currently doing a read-aloud Stories from Shakespeare with my eight-year-old, and it's bloody marvellous! Apart from smallish text on dark-coloured ground on some pages, that is.He is loving it, so long as I do plenty of funny voices, with hilarious lovestruck swains and scary ghosts and imperious kings. The stories are engaging, short enough, and well-written, distilling the essence of the story without losing unnecessarily much in the modern-language rewriting.As soon as we'd finished Romeo and Juliet, he turned to me and said, "You know what would be cool? Romeo and Juliet, with guns."So guess what we're in the middle of watching now?(His first comment, shortly into the movie: "Everyone's a poet in this, aren't they?")
