Today marks the date of birth for Ian Lendler and Zack Giallongo’s The Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue Presents Macbeth, which is a book you should all read!
Macbeth is hungry . . . hungry for life (and also tacos). The king is an owl — tiny but delicious. This is clearly a recipe for catastrophe.
We’re so glad to be publishing this book, which has a unique take on one of Shakespeare’s most well known works, for younger readers who are just starting out with the works of the Bard. In The Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue Presents Macbeth, you get the play . . . and the perspective of the audience, both at the same time! And these actors, all inhabitants of the Stratford Zoo, are some of the craziest folks you’ll ever meet!
Also, you guys: Lady Macbeth is a leopard. A spotted leopard.
How can you resist?
