'Shakespeare for Children: The Tragedy of Macbeth' by Shakespeare Children is a concise retelling of the play.
With illustrations this short 64 page book does a pretty good job of summarizing the story of Macbeth. All the characters and major events are here.
It's a pretty brutal story that's probably best for middle school aged readers. This would also be an excellent pre-read for someone before they saw the classic play. The overview is solid, but can't replace the beauty and drama of the original. I liked this retelling.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Sweet Cherry Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
