Romeo and Juliet. A classic pair. And who better to play them than…a rooster and a bear?

Once again, the animals of the Stratford Zoo are performing Shakespeare like you’ve never seen it– with fangs, feathers, tails, and most importantly, heart.

Ian Lendler's hilarious tale of after-hours animal stagecraft is perfectly paired with the adorable, accessible artwork of Zack Giallongo (Broxo, Ewoks) in this side-splitting companion to their graphic novel The Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue Presents Macbeth.

“Splendidly approachable—and adeptly not watered-down—for younger readers…Bravo! Where so many earnest Shakespeare adaptations flop, this series bids fair to light genuine enthusiasm in young readers.”
–Kirkus Review

"If you want Shakespeare introduced in an engaging way, this is your dude."
–Gene Luen Yang (author of American Born Chinese, Boxers & Saints; National Ambassador for Young People's Literature)
