Wonderful things

One midsummer night, two lovers run away to the wood. There they find two other lovers X but what they don't know is that the wood is full of magical people: the fairies and elves. When a naughty elf decides to play a trick, everything becomes very mixed up.

The four stories in this book are about things becoming mixed up. In one story, Viola dresses as a man to become the servant of a prince, and then falls in love with him. In another story, two girls dress up as men, and go to find a prince who lives in a forest. They have many adventures on the way ...

Here, too, you can read the famous story of the young lovers, Romeo and Juliet, who cannot live in peace, because their families hate each other.

This book includes A Midsummer Night's Dream, Twelfth Night, Romeo and Juliet and As You Like It.

William Shakespeare lived in England four hundred years ago. He is one of the world's greatest writers, and his plays are still enjoyed by millions of people. This is partly because of the wonderful stories they tell.
