“Your ebook was a godsend because it was distinct, easily accessible and very child friendly. The resource I obtained from you has been used again and again”

M Browning

“I have used No Sweat Shakespeare’s versions of both Hamlet and Macbeth with my 11th and 12th grade students. I can honestly say that your texts allowed my students to fully engage in Shakespeare’s text and, most importantly, to enjoy them. They found the story format much easier to read than the original script format.”

Lisa Melody

“I needed a version of the play that was not a “watered down” text that my students could understand and get the meaning from so that they could relate to the themes of the play without getting lost in the language. This version has been instrumental in my students’ understanding and I am so glad I found your website.”

Steven Shelton

“The book is authentic, and very close to Shakespeare’s original plot. It also has the WHOLE story there, and doesn’t miss parts out. It explores the characters well, for example when it describes Romeo’s mood… I rate it 5 stars.” 

Jonathan Howard

“I read the Tempest by Shakespeare a couple of times, and I’m not used to that style of language and grammar. Just to be sure I had all the details, I downloaded The Tempest from you. It helped clear a couple things up for me and added some minor details that really helped when it came test time.” 

Kevin Thorpe

“The service you offer is absolutely fantastic and allowed my daughter to be able to understand the play in modern day language, which made reading and following the original much easier. It is with no undertatement the reason she did so well in her English exams. Probably the best money I have ever spent on her education!” 

Christine Daly

“I was never too keen on reading Shakespeare, as it is written in very old English and I found it difficult to understand. This book has changed my mind entirely, and made me want to read the other books and try out proper Shakespeare.”

Aaron Jordan

“These are wonderful teaching tools. Language is key in teaching Shakespeare and I often start my students with passages from the literal text, juxtaposed with the same passage from No Sweat Shakespeare . I like the download option; it is perfect for my purposes. I can cut & paste to create my own lesson plans.” 

Patrick Kreischer

“My students patted themselves on the pack for having a deeper understanding of the material than their friends in other classes. Clearly, using your texts was a “win-win” situation for both teacher and students! Thank you for making a master story teller accessible to all students.”

Hamlet for Kids Ebook Sample

.

Hamlet, the young royal prince of Denmark, was studying at a university in Germany. One day he was given the news that his father, the King of Denmark had died. He made arrangements to go home to be with his mother. His friend, Horatio, went with him.  Hamlet was the only child of the king and queen and he expected to be made king on his return.

When he arrived at Elsinore, the royal castle, he was surprised to find that his father’s brother, Claudius, had become King. Not only that but also that his mother had married Claudius. It was a shock to Hamlet and he didn’t know what to do.

Soon after, a sentry, Francisco, was on guard duty on the castle ramparts. Another guard, Bernardo, who arrived to relieve him, climbed the stairs to the castle’s ramparts. It was a bitterly cold night. Bernardo made his way carefully through the freezing fog. He saw a dim figure and challenged him.

‘Who’s there?’

‘No, you answer me!’ It was Francisco’s voice. ‘Stop and identify yourself!’

Bernardo stopped. ‘Long live the King!’

‘Bernardo?’ Francisco said.

‘Yes, it’s me.’

Francisco relaxed. ‘You’re right on time.’

‘It’s just gone midnight,’ said Bernardo. ‘Get off to bed, Franciso.’

‘Thank goodness.’ Francisco prepared to leave. ‘It’s freezing and I’m dead bored.’

‘Has it been quiet?’

‘Not even a mouse stirring.’

‘Well goodnight then.’

Bernardo stopped him. ‘If you see the guard master and Horatio, the Prince’s friend, tell them to hurry.’
