Publisher's Summary

"There is a disease that can twist men's hearts and make them mad, and the name of that disease is jealousy." So begins this engaging retelling of one of William Shakespeare's last plays - a fascinating and unique combination of intensity and whimsy. When King Leontes unfairly accuses his wife of infidelity, he sets off a terrible chain of events. But this is not one of Shakespeare's tragedies. It's a romance, and one with a healthy dose of fancy and surprise. A story of redemption and the strength of friendship and true love, The Winter's Tale is perhaps also Bruce Coville's most eloquent retelling yet.

Shakespeare Comes Alive.

What made the experience of listening to William Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale the most enjoyable?

Written as a play...preformed as a play. This was a wonderful way to experience the story and understand characters and follow the storyline.

What does A. C. Fellner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I really enjoyed the musical introductions!

Any additional comments?

Thank you for making Shakespeare come alive.
