    1. This is every freakin' shade of adorable!After the zookeepers have gone home for the night, a tragedy occurs. Fear not - it is the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, and it is performed by animals, for animals. We get to see all the drama taking place onstage AND in the audience, as forest resident Juliet meets petting zoo denizen Romeo. BUT, the Wilders and the Petters can't be friends, and therein lies the tale. Since this is aimed at children, a few things have been changed. Romeo and Juliet are ju [...]


    2. ***Wanda’s Summer Carnival of Children’s Literature***The second installment of this graphic novel series and it is every bit as cute and smart as the first one. More lessons on what theatre is all about. The lion, who played Macbeth in the first book, now plays Juliet’s parent-approved love interest, Parry. When a young monkey in the audiences says, “Look, there’s Macbeth,” his mother explains to him about actors and that in this play the lion is Parry. The two old vultures in the u [...]


    3. I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.I don’t read a lot of middle grade graphic novels but I have to say that one of my all-time favorites was Macbeth (Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue). Macbeth was the first edition of the so-called Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue series that is hopefully an ongoing one. I was so excited after I read Macbeth because I laughed so much and there was a promise of more! Then when I got the chance to read the next installment [...]

    5. This graphic novel by Ian Lendler and Zack Giallongo is the sequel to THE STRATFORD ZOO MIDNIGHT REVUE PRESENTS MACBETH -- and it's another adaptation of one of Shakespeare's classic plays, presented by the animals of the Stratford Zoo.I really like Ian and Zack's spin on this play -- I think it's really interesting that they took the classical love story and turned it into a piece about true friendship. Friendship is pretty awesome, and not something that there are many classic stories about as [...]


    6. Another after-hours Shakespeare performance by zoo animals, this time a compressed funny graphic retelling of Romeo & Juliet that will amuse those completely unfamiliar with the source material and amuse more those who know it well.



    7. Ολόκληρη η κριτική στο Smassing CultureΠάρκο Στρατφορντ- Σαίξπηρ χωρίς εκπτώσεις!Επειδή υπάρχουν αρκετές διασκευές του σαιξπηρικού έργου σε κόμικ, συχνά ξεχνάμε το ότι αυτό δεν είναι καθόλου εύκολη υπόθεση. Ίσως θα έπρεπε να μας το θυμίζει ότι πολύ λίγες από αυτές πραγματικά ξεχω [...]


    8. Μπορώ να πω ότι με κέρδισαν αυτά τα δύο από τα εξώφυλλα τους. Και ότι τα πήρα 10 ευρώ και τα δύο Όντως αρκετά παιδικά. Βλέπουμε διάφορα ζώα του ζωολογικού κήπου να ανεβάζουν παραστάσεις του Σαίξπηρ, πάντα σε χιουμοριστικά πλαίσια κρατώντας την πολύ βασική πλοκή ενώ προσθέτου [...]


    9. Inspired by a Comic Con at the local library, my son checked this out from the graphic novel section. At this stage of his reading career (kindergarten, just beginning to be able to read very simple texts independently) I have mixed feelings about graphic novels. On the one hand, I love that he can independently look at the pictures and piece together quite a bit of the story that way. On the other hand, he still wants me to read to him each night at bedtime and these books are more challenging [...]


    10. I think I enjoyed this retelling of the Shakespearean classic almost as much as the Stratford Zoo's version of Macbeth. I'm not sure I see quite why the creators changed the romance aspect into "best friendship" (except for the bedroom scene, but they could have toned that down). Still, it was fun and makes my kids want to see Shakespeare--and as a parent, I particularly enjoyed the frame story. My son also really liked the director's notes at the end, and Lender sneaks in a little more about Sh [...]


    11. I applaud the effort in retelling Shakespeare in a beautiful graphic novel that will attract a young audience. This effort went a little too far in adaptation to almost render the original unrecognizable. The art is wonderful, the plot clever, the setting wonderful. The animal audience attending the play and their comments are great in expanding the way you are to think about the play. I am sorry, but I just loved Macbeth better.


    12. Maybe not quite as good as Macbeth. though that could just be because I loathe the actual Romeo and Juliet and find Macbeth to be a far better play overall.Either way.






    13. This was a cute graphic novel presenting Romeo and Juliet for a kid focused audience. There were some fun puns and references that were more sophisticated, making it enjoyable for a wider age range as well. I liked the way they handled the death scene and set it up to help younger kids understand the plot.


    14. This is a cute follow up to the first Midnight Review production of MACBETH. It's fun to see the same animals in new roles.To make a child-friendly version of the star-crossed lovers, the Midnight Review has replaced the Capulets and Montagues with wilders (wild animals) and petters (animals living in a petting zoo). Juliet is a bear belonging to the wilders, and Romeo is a rooster belonging to the petters. The two meet when Romeo, looking for adventure, crashes a wilder masquerade party. Juliet [...]


    15. Huge thank you to First Second and Netgalley for this ARC!3.5As a former ESL teacher and tutor, there was nothing more difficult than teaching someone Shakespeare. Trying to give someone an overview or understanding of why a story is the way it is is always a challenge. Thankfully, what I love about The Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue Presents Romeo and Juliet is what it makes Shakespeare's work accessible to young audiences, while removing the difficult language barrier some may find when reading [...]


    16. At night the Stratford Zoo performs Shakespeare's plays. The animal thespians set the stage for the adaptation of Romeo and Juliet where a rooster and a bear play the title roles. This adaptation casts the Capulets as bears that belong to a group called Wilders, or animals that live freely out in the forest, and the Montagues as roosters, belonging to the Petters, farm animals residing at the Verona Petting Zoo. The play follows the Shakepeare's plot except Romeo and Juliet are to be best friend [...]


    17. I love the director's notes to himself at the end of the play. It shows his brainstorming list for settings - 1920s Chicago (nope, gunfire would be heard by the zookeeper), dragonriders (no, balls of flame would be noticed too easily), rival marching bands (too noisy) - oh, a petting zoo is quiet! And so, another adaptation of the Bard is begun. Romeo is a rooster in a petting zoo and Juliet is a bear in the woods; petter and wilder can never be friends. But they do meet and become best friends. [...]


    18. This was my first Stratford Zoo comic and I loved this! Usually I'm not a fan of rewrites of classics, since they hardly ever offer anything new or different. I was happy to notice that this Midnight Revue actually upgraded the story! The notes at the back of the book were hilarious too and I really liked the way the whole play was presented. Now the Stradford Zoo Midnight Revue has taken on Romeo and Juliet and we have this rooster playing Romeo and a bear playing the part of Juliet. Of course [...]


    19. The Stratford Zoo animals are putting on another play. This one is their version of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo is a rooster in the petting zoo. Juliet is a young bear in the wild. The wilders and the petters do not mix, but when Romeo sneaks into a party Juliet is at, the two become friends. They sneak out for a play date and seek the wisdom of the wise old owl for how to keep their friendship alive. The owl advises them to declare each themselves best friends and when that isn't enough, he cooks u [...]


    20. I won this as an ARC. This book was hilarious for children and adults. It took the story of Romeo and Juliet, aand had the animals of the zoo put on an adapted play (it was the petters vs. the wilders.) In this case Romeo is a rooster who is a "petter"who lives at the zoo and wants to be best friends with Juliet who is a "wilder." Some of the most entertaining parts were not actually part of the play, but the attendees commenting on the play, or interacting with one another. At the end of the bo [...]


    21. Just adorable! Macbeth was my favourite but this comes pretty close. That's probably my own bias though since I love Macbeth and don't like Romeo and Juliet. However, Lender changes everything about R&J that bothers me turning it into a cute little romp of a tragedy. Romeo is a rooster and Juliet is a bear and instead of being in love they become BFF's! They don't commit suicide but go into hibernation and the theme is prejudice: petting zoo animals vs forest animals. The book is a joy to re [...]


    22. The animal thespians of the Stratford Zoo provide a weekly performance for the other zoo members. Their loose retelling of Romeo & Juliet introduces the audience to Romeo, played by the rooster, who longs to spread his wings and find love outside the ordinary confines of his life. He meets Juliet the bear. The two become friends. But others object to the friendship, because friendship between a Petter (petting-zoo animal) and a Wilder (wild animal) is just not done.This kid-friendly graphic [...]


    23. I ran across this book while I was processing graphic novels at the library where I work. When the Stratford Zoo closes for the evening the animals put on Shakespeare plays. We et to witness the inhabitants of the zoo experience Shakespeare from a unique perspective, their own. Normally I wouldn't pay much attention to a book like this, not really being a fan of Shakespeare, but I'm always interested to see what different graphic novels are out there. I'm glad I gave this book a second glance, i [...]


    24. In the previous outing, the residents of the zoo were treated to a rendition of Macbeth. This time, the animal actors take on the classic Romeo and Juliet with the two families being divided into Wilders and Petters, represented by a fetching female bear and a strutting rooster. With funny asides in the audience and generous interpretation of the play itself, the animals breathe new life--or perhaps a different kind of life--into a classic story that never fails to move audiences. Although the i [...]


    25. Funny funny funny. There's a frame story playing out in the audience of the Stratford Petting Zoo's production of ROMEO AND JULIET. Romeo the Rooster, and Juliet the Bear, should never have met. They never should have become bestiesbut they did. In the audience are a monkey family and sheep family with warring childrend a pair of vultures of whom is wearing a golden hamster on his head (can you say, "Donald Trump?"). Everyone is looking forward to the woe promised in the storyLOTS going on in th [...]
