    These books are aimed at younger children, but are fantastic for old and young alike for easily explaining the plots of Shakespeare works in ways that are easy to understand. Hamlet especially is very good. My only complaint is that sometimes they miss out important plot points. Overall, the illustrations are great and the stories are even better!
