Shakespeare’s most prominent romantic comedy about love, envy, intrigues and happiness:

The lovely hero and the nobleman Claudio want to marry, but the villain Don Juan envies their happiness and plots to ruin their wedding plans …

retold by Barbara Kindermann & illustrated by Almud Kunert

“Magical, impressive images and the perceptively renarrated text wonderfully resurrect Shakespeares game of cat and mouse.” – KIKA

“Barbara Kindermann retells Shakespeare without borrowing the difficult language of the time of its origin. She rather retraces the entire plot in child-oriented language, but without forfeiting quality.” –
