Publisher's Summary

"There is a disease that can twist men's hearts and make them mad, and the name of that disease is jealousy." So begins this engaging retelling of one of William Shakespeare's last plays - a fascinating and unique combination of intensity and whimsy. When King Leontes unfairly accuses his wife of infidelity, he sets off a terrible chain of events. But this is not one of Shakespeare's tragedies. It's a romance, and one with a healthy dose of fancy and surprise. A story of redemption and the strength of friendship and true love, The Winter's Tale is perhaps also Bruce Coville's most eloquent retelling yet.

    "Great intro to Shakespeare for kids"
    What did you love best about William Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale?

    This is an adaptation for children (or people generally unfamiliar with Shakespeare). Coville always does a nice job at maintaining the feel of the story while cutting out some of the things that might be over the top for a child. (Check out his


    What about A. C. Fellner’s performance did you like?

    He did a great job. His voice was perfect for the poor, deluded king.

    "Shakespeare Comes Alive."
    What made the experience of listening to William Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale the most enjoyable?

    Written as a play...preformed as a play. This was a wonderful way to experience the story and understand characters and follow the storyline.


    What does A. C. Fellner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really enjoyed the musical introductions!


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you for making Shakespeare come alive.
