Horn Book Review

If readers must have Hamlet as prose before they tackle the Bard's challenging poetry, this picture book version is accessible and expertly told. Coville employs rich and elegant language in his retelling, remains faithful to the original plot and characters, and smoothly incorporates lines from the play. The textured illustrations create an atmosphere as brooding as the prince. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
