While my first love was SF, I read widely in YA, urban fantasy, police procedurals, middle-grade, and non-fiction.
Ian Lendler, the author of The Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue Presents Macbeth posted on The Nerdy Book Club. So I took a look at his book.
The concept is intriguing: After the Stratford zoo closes for the day, the animals entertain themselves by staging the plays written by their famous neighbor Will (Will Shakespeare that is).
The artwork is stunning: Bold colors that will hold a child's attention and visual gags that match the story's arc.
The storyline is meh: The revisions to the plot of Macbeth, cherry-picking "greatest hits" scenes to fit the length limitations and changing key aspects to make the material = "kid safe" end up make the story disjointed. I almost feel like you need to already know Macbeth to follow the happenings, which won't help younger readers.
