About the Author:

Andrew Matthews has written numerous books for children and teenagers, and is an internationally renowned author. He wrote King Arthur and Wolf Summer for the Orchard list, as well as a series of retellings of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales. Andrew has been short-listed twice for the Smarties Award. He lives in Berkshire. Tony Ross is one of the most highly regarded children's book creators/illustrators in Britain. For Orchard he illustrated the Greek and Roman Myths books in the Orchard Myths range, and the hilarious One and Only series by Laurence Anholt, as well as the poetry collection Balloon Lagoon. Tony lives in Wales.

Review:

Matthews has turned the play into a lively, straightforward story which conveys the spirit of the original, ably abetted by the drawings of Tony Ross, who can depict the subtlest facial expressions with three sots, a smudge and a squiggle * Carousel * Matthew's vibrant and accessible retelling, coupled with expressive and funny illustrations by Tony Ross, provides a perfect introduction to this story from Shakespeare * Write Away *
