Hamlet – this week I read Hamlet. It was the most brutal book I’ve ever read! People died, there was a ghost and Hamlet came up with some very silly plans! My mum explained to me that these books are a way for children to read and understand Shakespeare’s stories, which I think is a good idea.

    I read King Lear. It is about a king that gets old and how people and his family treat him. I think Shakespeare likes to write about life and death and to tell people to treat old people nicely like a moral to a story. I liked the book even though Shakespear wrote these stories along time ago.

Henry V _ I really enjoyed reading this book because it was very interesting but mostly because I like the William Shakespeare books.

Antony and Cleopatra _ I really enjoyed reading this book because of the way Antony gave his life for her.
