The latest in the breakout series Manga Shakespeare, introducing teens to a new kind of Bard.
Shipwrecks, long-lost families, and a powerful magician make Shakespeare’s masterpiece perfect for the Manga Shakespeare. Miranda and her father, Prospero, have been on an isolated island for twelve years. When the survivors of a shipwreck land on the island (thanks to Prospero’s magical machinations), they’re drawn into a web of coincidences, love at first sight, and old grievances that only Prospero’s forgiveness can remedy. Full of tricks and intrigue and ingeniously adapted into the manga form, The Tempest is a rollicking read for both Shakespeare aficionados and those coming to him for the first time.
