Books on the Bard: Brick Shakespeare

To help celebrate Shakespeare’s anniversary on 23rd April, we look at some interesting and fun children’s books surrounding the bard – and my, how many there are!

Brick Shakespeare by John McCann (Skyhorse Publishing)

Shakespeare meets Lego in these ingenious books!

Covering three comedies and three tragedies you find the plays acted out by Lego people. Each scene is accompanied by text from the plays allowing children to engage with Shakespeare in a totally original way.

My particular favourite is Jar Jar Binks as Bottom in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”!
