Shakespeare was never so easy to read as it is in this book. Bruce and the illustrator Tim Raglin did a great job retelling and illustrating this comical story. A young man and woman who are twins become shipwrecked. The man is not to be found but the woman whose name is Viola survives and disguises herself as a man in order to serve Duke Orsino. She falls in love him but the Duke has no clue how she feels because he sees her as his man servant, Cesario. The Duke is in love with a woman named Lady Olivia. The Duke repeatly sends Viola (Cesario) to Lady Olivia with messages of his love for her. However, Lady Olivia detests the Duke. She falls in love with Cesario (Viola) who is really a woman. Will anyone in this very funny story end up with the man/woman of their dreams?
