Lisbeth Zwerger, recipient of the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for her art, brings her beautifully spare style to this touching love story.

Anthea Bell is a noted translator and storyteller, and her adaptation of Shakespeare’s text is both readable and delightfully poetic.

Shakespeare’s stories are a staple of English literature, and this adaptation is a perfect introduction to a timeless classic.

When heartsick Romeo’s friends try to cheer him up by sneaking him into a party thrown by their arch-enemies, the Capulets, Romeo spies the beautiful Juliet–and his life is forever changed. Love and tragedy, conflict and regret fill Shakespeare's famous play, one of the most moving love stories of all time. Adapted by the masterful storyteller Anthea Bell and illustrated with hauntingly beautiful pictures by the worldrenowned Lisbeth Zwerger, this picture book is the perfect introduction to Shakespeare for children of all ages.
