My rating: 5 of 5 stars :star :star :star :star

A copy of this book was provided to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

This was the most adorable, creative, and hilarious little graphic novel I've read in a long time. It's very short, so there isn't much to say, except I loved it. I wasn't expecting it to be so funny either.

Basically in the Stratford Zoo at night, the animals all congregate and put on shows of famous Shakespeare plays in their own versions (which are very different, much shorter, and hilarious). That's how we find a host of animals watching and performing Macbeth. Macbeth is played by a lion who proceeds to eat the King, and then anyone who gets in his way (leaving behind a trail of ketchup and indigestion).

Perfect read for children or adults who just want something short and sweet with great graphics. I can't wait to read more in this series! ^_^
