Hmm.  Not clear or concise enough for the youngest children, too simplistic for the older.  Maybe a good 'starter' for teens who know they will be assigned the full work and want a 'warm-up' before class.  The pictures are appealing, and the introduction to historical London is helpful.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763622583, Hardcover)

The bard's quintessential love story — retold in an elegantly illustrated volume that will appeal both to aficionados of Shakespeare's play and to readers discovering it for the first time.

The story has been told "many times by many different people in many different languages," notes Michael Rosen. Now the acclaimed author of SHAKESPEARE: HIS WORK AND HIS WORLD presents the Bard's best-loved play — perhaps of all time — in a beautiful picture book for children. Michael Rosen retells ROMEO AND JULIET scene by scene in a simple, lively style that incorporates the most celebrated passages in their original form, while a border on each spread offers act and scene references and a glossary of difficult words. Exquisite illustrations by Jane Ray complete the production, making this an edition to enthrall the eye as well as the ear.
