Microwave Shakespeare Pack 1 is a collection of the first six titles published in this series. The plays covered are six key plays studied in schools and together form a great introduction to Shakespeares plays.  Each play is retold as a straightforward, pacey narrative in chapter-book format. Plus each book includes visual information to help pupils get to grips with the plot, the key characters and their important relationships in the play. The stories are all presented in the period of the play but with modern day language.


Written by two award winning writers Barbara Catchpole and Stephen Rickard, these are really accessible books. They are ideal for reluctant and struggling readers, also perfect for getting all pupils comfortable with each play before they go on to study it in its original form and a great all round introduction to Shakespeare.


This pack contains one copy of each of the following books from the Microwave Shakespeare Series:




Romeo and Juliet

The Merchant of Venice

Twelfth Night

A Midsummer Night's Dream
