Review by

This is a perfectly abstract of the Shakespeare play. I bought this because I will see the play at the Globe in London and I needed a short insight of the story. This book is written for children with wonderful illustrations. It's the story of Mark Antony and Cleopatra told from the view of Servius who is Antony's bodyguard. During the reading all my history knowledge came back. It's written simple but with a lot of care.
