What did you like about the book? One of the greatest stories ever told, in text! From emoticons to abbreviated text language, this book retells the story of Hamlet in text form. A perfect “hook” to get kids interested in Shakespeare.
What didn’t you like about the book? I liked everything about this book
To whom would you recommend this book? This is a perfect introduction to reading Hamlet. Students can relate to the book and understand the characters and plot before they read the actual play.
Who should buy this book? All libraries
Where would you shelve it and why? With books by Shakespeare
Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? Yes.
