What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

What fools these mortals be! ?―Puck, Act III, Scene 2, 115 Join Bottom the Weaver, Oberon and Titania, and the confused lovers in a series of events so outrageous it must be a dream! Filled with interactive wheels and pull-tabs, and lavishly illustrated, Lit for Little Hands: A Midsummer Night’s Dream is an unprecedented kid’s introduction to William Shakespeare’s beloved classic comedy. Unlike many board books that tackle the classics, Lit for Little Hands tells the actual story in simple prose?―here with engaging present-tense narrative to mimic the immediacy of a play. Gorgeous illustrations transport the reader from Athens to the enchanted woods, while tons of interactive elements invite kids to find the magical flower and switch Bottom’s human head for a donkey’s! Fans of the play will be delighted by the book’s attention to detail and clever use of original dialogue. And the book’s super-sturdy board means everyone can enjoy this outrageous tale over . . . and over . . . and over again!
