Summary:
Retells, in simplified prose, William Shakespeare's play about a prince of Denmark who seeks revenge for his father's murder.

Late one fog-shrouded night three men stood watch on the battlements of Elsinore castle. The castle was on high alert, for rumors were spreading that Fortinbras of Norway was preparing to attack Denmark.

Publisher Description:
There is arguably no work of fiction quoted as often as William Shakespeare's
Hamlet. This haunting tragedy has touched audiences for centuries. Now Bruce Coville makes this play the next of his dynamic adaptations of the Bard for the young. Once again, he expertly incorporates essential lines from the play into his own rich prose to tell the tale of the ill-fated Prince of Denmark.

Acclaimed artist Leonid Gore adds intense, dreamlike images in acrylic and pastel. His depictions of Hamlet, Ophelia, and the rest of the kingdom are revelatory and unforgettable, helping to make this masterful volume a treasure for Shakespeare enthusiasts old and new.
