Description :

    The Adventures of Robin Hood
    An exuberant comic-strip retelling of eleven of Robin Hood's adventures: from becoming an outlaw and meeting Little John and Friar Tuck to falling in love with Maid Marian and battling with Guy of Gisborne. Packed with hilarious illustrations, witty narrative and jokes, this book brings the legend of Robin Hood alive.

    Mr. William Shakespeare's Plays
    Take your place in the Globe Theatre of Shakespeare's day to see seven of his best-loved plays in performance. Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Macbeth, Julius Caesar, The Winter's Tale and The Tempest are all brought vividly to life in Marcia Williams' gloriously accessible comic-strip versions, which include the bard's own dialogue and the rowdy remarks of the audience.

    Chaucer's Canterbury Tales
    Travel back to Medieval England and join Chaucer and his merry band of pilgrims on their way to Canterbury. You'll meet the Wife of Bath, the Knight, the Franklin and many more colourful characters, all brought to life in Marcia Williams' funny comic-strip style.

    King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table
    Aided by the magician Merlin, Arthur draws the sword from the stone to become King of Britain and Lord of the Knights of the Round Table. Read of their valiant deeds as King Arthur, Sir Lancelot, Sir Galahad and the other heroic knights rescue maidens, fight dragons, defend Excalibur and search for the Grail. These are classic tales, rich in adventure, romance and enchantment.

    Oliver Twist and Other Great Dickens Stories
    Charles Dickens created some of the best-loved characters in literature. In this book you will find five of his greatest stories retold and illustrated by Marcia Williams in lively comic-strip style. Meet and make friends with Tiny Tim, Mr Fagin, Uriah Heep, Scrooge, The Artful Dodger, Sydney Carton, Mr Bumble, Pip and Estella, Betsey Trotwood, Sykes and Nancy.
