Press Reviews

Macbeth is just one of an outstanding series of condensed versions of Shakespeare’s plays from Usborne. With their exciting and atmospheric illustrations, accessible and thought-provoking storytelling and internet links to associated websites, there could be no better way to awaken an early and hopefully lifelong enthusiasm for the bard.
