Macbeth - Gareth Hinds

Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth (Candlewick, $12.99 paperback, $21.99 hardcover) is brought to life by author and illustrator Gareth Hinds. Hinds uses the Bard’s original text and renders the gruesome story of the Scottish king in extraordinarily vivid detail. From the appropriately dark color palate to the elaborate character design, Hinds—well-versed in graphically interpreting classics, such as Beowulf and The Odyssey—opens doors into the play, providing readers a chance to experience this work like never before. Ages 13 and up. Allison Witten
