From the Inside Flap:

(back cover)
"The time is out of joint. O, cursed spite,
That ever I was born to set it right!"


Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. A new king is on the throne-- and the ghost of the old king walks the battlements at night, demanding revenge. Hamlet, the old king's son, ought to avenge him -- but can he find the courage to do what must be done?
