Hinds, Gareth, 1971-

The most excellent and lamentable tragedy of Romeo & Juliet : a play by William Shakespeare / Romeo & Juliet Romeo and Juliet adapted and illustrated by Gareth Hinds. - First edition. - 128 pages : color illustrations ; 27 cm

"A brief note to the reader: I chose to cast my retelling of Romeo & Juliet with multiracial characters in order to reflect how universal this story is."--Title page verso.

"She's a Capulet. He's a Montague. But when Romeo and Juliet first meet, they don't know they're from rival families-- and when they find out, they don't care. Their love is honest and raw and all-consuming. But it's also dangerous. How much will they have to sacrifice before they can be together? In a masterful adaptation faithful to Shakespeare's original text, Gareth Hinds transports readers to the sun-washed streets and market squares of Shakespeare's Verona, vividly bringing the classic play to life on the printed page."--
