OMG Shakespeare!

I loved the OMG Shakespeare series SRSLY Hamlet and YOLO Juliet. It’s such a great way of showing teens and kids a simple Shakespeare they can understand. I love that Shakespeare is once again popular!

Another great set of Shakespeare books with emojis! They are so hilariously fun. You can’t help but picture each character with a phone texting one another. The Shakespearean language can be foreign and a bit hard to understand.

With emojis well placed I feel like I’m reading texts from my friends. The OMG Shakespeare series is wonderfully written with modern takes one Macbeth and A Midsummer Night in the form text messages. In a world where most people prefer texting as communication, these books come at a perfect time. Kids of all ages can read these books and enjoy them! The emojis are perfectly placed throughout the plays to add some humor to such dreary stories. The story makes sense. I’m sure even Shakespeare would be proud!

Should you read it? Yes! A fun take on classics that any kid or adult would enjoy. And what’s even greater? It’s a quick read. No more looking up on Google the meaning of each scene. Just sit back and laugh.
