Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue Presents: Macbeth

Middle Grade Graphic Novel

G/A  Lendler, Ian.  Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue Presents: Macbeth.  First Second, 2014.  74p.  978-1-59643-915-3.  12.99.

When the lights go out and the zookeeper goes home for the evening the animals all get together to watch a production of Macbeth. Macbeth is played by the king of the jungle himself, the lion. With quirky scenes from the audience, including the elephant blocking the audience’s view of the bloodiest scene while trying to find his seat, this graphic novel is a fun adaptation of the Shakespeare classic. Although geared towards a younger middle school audience, any fan of Shakespeare would enjoy this quick (and humorous) version of the tragic play. Stay tuned because next up in September 2015 the animals are back to perform Romeo and Juliet. Loren Spector, LAPL, Memorial Branch
