A Midsummer Night's Dream; retold by Georghia Ellinas

Candlewick Press - 2021
Oh my goodness, I fell in love with this magical, charming story that takes a comical look at love gone wrong in the fairy tale kingdom. Told from the POV of Robin Goodfellow, the one everyone calls Puck, the one who has the ability to make himself invisible and play tricks on both fairies and mortals.
Even though the story is abbreviated and retold for kids, there are original quotes peppered throughout and the gorgeous illustrations on oversized quality pages that really seemed to make this story come alive and jump off the pages. Personally, I think the older children (ages 6-8) in the targeted range would be more enthralled by this one.
This is the second book in the retelling series. I missed The Tempest (2020) but, now have a need to check that one out as well. A lovely book, be sure to check it out.
Thanks go to Candlewick Press for sending this gem my way in exchange for my unbiased review.
