SHAKESPEARE ANIMATED TALES
12 Plays on 4 DVDs
REVIEW "Although the series will probably be used by senior high students who won't want to read the play, these abridgments are better than Cliffs Notes, and may be the only Shakespeare that many kids will be exposed to in their early years. So while the lover of literature in me cringes at the lost scenes in the animated tales, the practical side of me is thankful that condensed (but not watered-down) Shakespeare will be available to a much wider audience. Highly recommended." 3 1/2 STARS - Video Librarian
