The Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue Presents Macbeth
The Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue Presents Macbeth | Ian Lendler
6 posts | 7 read | 9 to read
The Stratford Zoo looks like a normal zoo... until the gates shut at night. That's when the animals come out of their cages to stage elaborate performances of Shakespeare's greatest works. They might not be the most accomplished thespians, but they've got what counts: heart. Also fangs, feathers, scales, and tails, in The Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue Presents Macbeth. Ian Lendler's hilarious tale of after-hours animal stagecraft is perfectly paired with the adorable, accessible artwork of Zack Giallongo (Broxo, Ewoks). And with Romeo and Juliet coming in book two, this is a promising new series of graphic novels for young readers.

Today I returned a bag of mostly unread books to the library to lessen my guilt of not reading them yet. These 7 books were on the hold shelf for me and several have other people waiting for them. I can‘t help myself. 😏

EvieBee LOL! I thought this was only me. I return to ease the guilt but I was told that we‘re contributing to the circulation of books (which equals funding) so I feel better lol! (edited) 2mo
Bookzombie @EvieBee Even though I know that, I still feel guilty sometimes, lol. However, sometimes I decide to be a bee. I will go to one branch and check out a bunch of books and then later return them to my branch. I sort of hope in moving them around that someone might come across them on the shelf and be interested too. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2mo

4.5 ⭐ If you have ever wondered what the zoo animals do at night, well they put on shows. They start off with Macbeth, the famous play by Willy Shakespeare. The play is presented and we the readers get to see not just the play, but the audience thoughts and participation. We find out why things like intermissions happen. This was the simplest but craziest retelling of Macbeth ever put to paper.

LibrarianRyan I loved every minute of it. Between the three witches trying to find the perfect witch laugh, and the queen dealing with her “spots”, kids will get a nice basis for the story, and have a better time than they would with a Great Illustrated Classic. 3mo

5⭐️ oh my goodness this was hilarious! So basically when the Stratford Zoo closes at night and the Zookeeper is gone, the animals put on Shakespeare plays! Very awesome find on SCRIBD

Confession: I'd say roughly 85% of the time I reeeeally dislike anthropomorphic animals (mostly seen in comics). However, my love knows no bounds for The Stratford Zoo series. If you love Shakespeare, if you *want* to love Shakespeare, if you want to get kids to love Shakespeare, you owe it to yourself to check out this series. Lendler has done Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet so far...he better not stop there! #anthropomorphiccharacters #FeistyFeb

Keyoung OMG. I never noticed the "slappies" before. I ❤️ everything about this book. 5y
LindsayReads @Keyoung It is THE. BEST. 5y
