Fectly paired with the adorable accessible artwork of Zack Giallongo Broxo Ewoks in this side splitting companion to their graphic novel The Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue Presents Macbeth. I think I enjoyed this retelling of the Shakespearean classic almost as much as the Stratford Zoo's version of Macbeth I'm not sure I see uite why the creators changed the romance aspect into best friendship except for the bedroom scene but they could have toned that down Still it was fun and makes my kids want to see Shakespeare and as a parent I particularly enjoyed the frame story My son also really liked the director's notes at the end and Lender sneaks in a little about Shakespeare Now to sell it to the middle schoolers
