Summary

Praise for Manga Shakespeare ALA Best Book for Young Adults ALA Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers "Reluctant readers who appreciate manga and who would not think of picking up the work of Shakespeare are sure to gravitate toward these titles. Even if the text puts them off, they will be drawn to the illustrations. These adaptations would make wonderful additions to any school or public library's manga collection." -VOYA "Refreshingly clear, this adaptation is recommended for all libraries serving teens." -Kirkus Reviews "This fresh new way of looking at a classic will draw new readers to Shakespeare, hopefully to discover that his plays are really quite entertaining." -YAbookscentral.com Shakespeare's most commonly studied plays, now the latest additions to the innovative Manga Shakespeare series. In Shakespeare's enduring tale of ancient Rome, Julius Caesar is at the height of his powers-but there are men plotting his destruction. Is Caesar a tyrant or a dynamic leader? Are his enemies greedy or noble? The Manga Shakespeare adaptation of this important work maintains the language-and the fierce political intrigue-of the original while including a fresh perspective through the style of modern manga.
