'Leon Garfield's Shakespeare Stories' in the WSJ's "Best Books to Give Children"

The Wall Street Journal named Leon Garfield's Shakespeare Stories, published by The New York Review Children's Collection, one of the “Best Books to Give Children." Meghan Cox Gurden writes:

"Leon Garfield’s Shakespeare Stories brings together sophisticated retellings of 21 plays, aimed at readers 10 and older, that Garfield (1921-96) originally published in two volumes. In these lively and evocative pages a child will hear Shakespeare’s poetry set in prose that will lay the groundwork for many a future enchanted evening at the theater."
