Now presenting Manga Shakespeare—the Bard’s greatest plays in an accessible, lively format for a new generation of readers

Hamlet is one of Shakespeare’s most well-known plays, and this exciting new retelling provides young readers an innovative introduction to “the melancholy Dane.” Hamlet is your typical angst-ridden teen—he doesn’t know how to deal with his responsibilities, how to treat his girlfriend, or how to react to his father’s death. He has no one to trust, and he even acts crazy so adults will leave him alone. Manga fans—and kids who find Shakespeare intimidating—will be drawn to the style and action of the Manga Shakespeare series, learning that required reading doesn’t have to be boring.
