This set covers Richard II, Henry IV parts 1 and 2, Henry V, Henry VI parts 1, 2, and 3, and Richard III. It is read by an outstanding cast of English classical actors, and introduced by Anton Lesser.

Well done

This book is as promised: a concise introduction to the plays of Shakespeare for older children. The actors performing the roles are outstanding, and David Timson's narration is beautiful. As with other children's collections, the salacious bits are glossed over or eliminated, but the substance of the story remains intact. Themes of tragedy, heroism, morality, and much more provide opportunities for further discussion. As opposed to written texts, listening helps to develop an ear for the unique language of Shakespeare and provides a preliminary foundation for future theatrical experience.
