9780978523701: Mothello: A High-Flying Introduction to Shakespeare for Kids (Phakespeare's Animal Shakespeare for Children Series)

The first in a series of Shakespeare adaptations casting the Bard's epic characters as animals (ROMEOW & JULICAT, KING DEER, LAMBLET...and more to follow), Mothello translates the complexities of Shakespeare, beginning in simple English and gradually introducing the full weight of the text. By using the literary convention of the backstory, the added narrative seeks to explain why Mothello behaved the way he did, why he became capable of murder, betraying his beloved Desdemona and eventually, himself. The hope is that young readers will relate more to animal characters and familiar animal behavior to make them want to persevere and be challenged by one of the greatest literary figures of all time.
