A new entry in the superb, visually striking, and innovative series for young people. Children, parents, librarians, educators, and critics will all be delighted to have another engrossing retelling of one of Shakespeare's plays.

A young woman's elopement with a dark-skinned foreigner. An evil manipulator, dead set on bloody revenge. A noble warrior, fatally consumed by jealousy. Shakespeare's play about the Moor who "loved not wisely but too well," comes to life in this intensely thrilling and beautifully illustrated retelling. The enticing text, written by an outstanding scholar, draws young readers in with outstanding dialogue, vivid description, and careful attention to the flow of events. Shakespeare's own lines blend seamlessly with the modern language, and illuminating information enhances youngsters' involvement and comprehension. There are answers to FAQs, background on Shakespeare and the play, and a "Who's Who" of the characters. Young Reader's Shakespeare is a powerful visual and reading experience.
Adam McKeown has taught Shakespeare, Renaissance culture, and writing at New York University, Clarkson University, and Princeton, and is currently a professor at Adelphi University in Long Island.
