Author(s): Marcia Williams
The perfect introduction to Shakespeare's tragedy Macbeth for children, written and illustrated by master storyteller Marcia Williams. Macbeth seems to have everything - success on the battlefield, a happy marriage, and the respect of the King. But soon he wants even more. When three witches predict that he'll be King one day, he'll go to any lengths to get it...even murder. This accessible retelling is faithful to the play and features Shakespeare's own dialogue.
