The course of true love never did run smooth.

Demetrius and Lysander love Hermia. Hermia loves Lysander, but is betrothed to Demetrius--much to her dismay. And no one loves Helena, though her heart belongs to Demetrius. It seems that love could never be so complicated!

When Hermia and Lysander escape through the forest to elope, Demetrius chases them--and Helena chases him. With the magic of the forest bewitching the hand of fate, perhaps their dreams of love will come true. . . .

Beautifully presented for a modern teen audience with both the original play and prose retellings selected from the Your Midsummer Night's Dream writing contest on, this is the must-have edition of William Shakespeare's timeless classic.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The proliferation of graphic-novel Shakespeare adaptations continues. Cardy and Nicholson's artwork gives the characters a nicely expressive range; the color palette is bold, luminescent, and mood evoking; and the well-designed panel flow presents an engaging version of the classic comedy. The volume is clearly intended for classroom use, and it is one of three versions: original text (presenting the play in its entirety), plain text (which uses contemporary language), and quick text (a heavily abridged adaptation). The back matter discusses how to convert a play into comics format, offers a short biography of Shakespeare, and touches on the Globe Theatre.--Goldsmith, Francisca Copyright 2010 Booklist"
