Synopsis

A first-rate entree to the Bard, hailed Publishers Weekly in praise of Bruce Coville's adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream (Dial). Now the author follows with Macbeth, expertly weaving his own dramatic yet accessible prose with language from the play, creating a gateway to the greater enjoyment of the original. Powerful paintings, rich in atmosphere, by renowned artist Gary Kelley--winner of twenty medals from the Society of Illustrators--make this, like its predecessor, a classic in itself, full justice to the genius that came before. * A perfect gift for both newcomers to Shakespeare's work as well as devoted followers.
 

About Bruce Coville

See more books from this Author
Bruce Coville was born in Syracuse, New York, on May 16, 1950. He spent one year at Duke University in North Carolina. Coville started working seriously at becoming a writer when he was seventeen. He was not able to start selling stories right away, so he had many other jobs, including toymaker, gravedigger, cookware salesman, and assembly line worker. Eventually, Coville became an elementary teacher, and worked with second and fourth graders. Coville married Katherine Dietz an artist, and they began trying to create books together. It wasn't until 1977 that they finally sold their first book, The Foolish Giant. They joined together on two other books after that, Sarah's Unicorn and The Monster's Ring, and followed them with Goblins in the Castle, Aliens Ate My Homework, and The World's Worst Fairy Godmother.
