This is the full Shakespeare play adapted into simplified plain English (aimed at a 10 year-old reading age), and brought to life as a vivid and engaging full-color graphic novel.

With its mix of real people who stumble into a fairy kingdom (with its own problems!) it is little wonder that this play is one of the best loved and most performed of all Shakespeare's masterpieces - and a firm favorite for outdoor theater on a warm summer's evening.

Designed to encourage readers to enjoy classical literature, titles in the Classical Comics range stay true to the original vision of the authors.
