These stories are based on some of Shakespeare's most famous plays.
I like Hamlet the best. The play is spreaded by their lines, while this book is explain. Hamlet is comlex play. So I think it is also good. ( )

I enjoyed reading stories which Shakespeare wrote. Stories were a little short, but it was comfortable for me. I liked all stories, but espscially "A Midsummer Night's Dream" was goog with a happy ending. ( )

There are four stories in this book, and I like all of them.
But, my favorite is A Midsummer Night' s Dream. This story was about four lovers and faries. I think rthis story is very funny.

And I also read Hamlet. It was the most exciting sory in this book, but I felt very sad. I was woriied about his country after they had died.

I enjoyed reading Shakespeare's stories very much. ( )

There are four famous stories in this book.
Four stories are The Merchant of Venice, A Midsummer Night's Dream,Hamlet, Julius Caesar.

I like "The Merchant of Venice" best of all stories.
Antonio who was a good man and merchant in Venice lent Shylock who was a money-lender and a cruel man 3000 gold pieces to help his dearest friend Bassanio.
But he couldn't pay Shylock back gold pieces.
He promised Shylock that if he doesn't pay Shylock back gold pieces, he must give Shylock a pound of his flesh.
Bassanio and his wife Portia finded a method to help him and went to Venice. What was a method?

I become want to read other Shakespeare's story .
I think Shakeapeare is great writer. ( )
