When Izzy (star of the Baby Aliens series) is asked to tell her friends some exciting stories, she thinks of Macbeth - there are battles, loads of gore, excellent witches and even walking trees! Soon her friends want more, so she moves on to A Midsummer Night's Dream (a man with a donkey's head called Bottom!), Romeo and Juliet (kissing - eew!) and Hamlet (who left that skull lying about?) and now everyone wants to know more about the Bard!Four hilarious retellings of Shakespeare's plays by the Blue Peter Award-winning duo Pamela Butchart and Thomas Flintham. Celebrating 400 years since the death of Shakespeare.
As a child, Pamela was lucky enough to grow up in a house full of pets, have a mum and dad who were bonkers, and go to The Best Most Awesome Primary School in the WorldTM. As a student, Pamela's student jobs included: fishwife, teaching basketball in America, phlebotomist, and Artist Liaison for a (really bad) Abba tribute band. Now, Pamela teaches philosophy to teenagers and spends all day pondering questions such as, 'Is time travel possible?' and 'How do I know I'm not really a robot?' The stories write themselves really...Thomas Flintham studied BA Fine Art at De Montfort University. Thomas works both digitally and in the old fashioned way on paper with brush and ink and drawing pens. He loves to draw and doodle. He has a very loose grip on reality, and enjoys disappearing into his own imagination in search of new characters, worlds and ideas to draw.His work is influenced by his interest in all kinds of books, films, comics and Japanese video games. He loves Christmas and chocolate. He owns (almost) too many books.
