Book Description

"What, my dear Lady Disdain! Are you yet living?" These famous lines from Shakespeare's comedy Much Ado About Nothing delightfully show the verbal sparring between the reluctant lovers, Beatrice and Benedick who are happily brought together at the end by the schemes of their friends. And, no story is complete without at least one evil character, Don John, who unsuccessfully tries to tear apart the wedding plans of Hero and Claudio, the other lovers in this sparkling tale.

Written in rhyming couplets, Much Ado About Nothing, the eighth book in this successful series, captures all the exciting elements of the original story, and is truly a delightful read for both adult and child.

Lois Burdett has been a teacher at Hamlet Public School in Stratford, Ontario, for over twenty years and her expertise in bringing Shakespeare to life for children as young as seven is reflected in the children's clever insights and wonderful drawings which complement the play.

Her success has resulted in an ever-increasing demand for workshops as far afield as Europe and Australia where she instructs educators on how they too can familiarize young children with Shakespeare.

From the Foreword by Denzel Washington

"[Lois Burdett's] delightfully entertaining text is complemented by her students' thoughtful interpretations and charming artwork which make Much Ado About Nothing come alive in a whole new way."

5.0 out of 5 stars Book of the Year!!! I'd give it 10 stars.. Aug. 23 2003
Format:Paperback
This is one of those series that is so well done you can't imagaine EVERYONE not knowing about it! Have you always been a bit out of the loop or intimidated about Shakespear? Or are you good with it but don't know how to show/share that love with your family and students. This series will do it!! It's good for ALL ages, my middle school students found it fun and informative yet... really young (4ish) children could learn from it too. Save your self the upgrade and buy it in hardback, this will be one that you keep for generations and get the "WHOLE" series, each one is just as good as the other!

I LOVE these books. I was very active in theater through college. Did a couple Shakespeare productions. These are a great way to introduce these plays to elementary ages. For upper elementary or junior high I recommend "Tales from Shakespeare" by Charles and Mary Lamb.
5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing work done by a public school teacher Oct. 24 2008

It's a pleasure to read "Shakespeare for kids" to my daughter (8) and son (6). The way Lois Burdett writes makes it easy for them to understand the contest (either commics or tragedy). The drawings are also wondeful.

cloyingly, annoyingly, mind bogglingly boring - a clever idea but not much more readable for the target audience than the original work

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice introduction to Shakespeare's Humor stories Nov. 7 2010
By M. Majmundar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wanted to introduce my daughters to Shakespeare and found, 'Shakespeare Can be Fun', series. My daughter tasted 'blood' with the series (so to speak). She read all the books I bought and now I "have" to order more :). I would start with 'Much Ado About Nothing' to introduce a kid to Shakespeare - it is an easy and fun read. I highly recommend it.
