“Romeo and Juliet at bedtime”
I was given this book at a party and I read it twice at bedtime. It's exciting but a very sad ending - but that's what Shakespeare wrote. Jana Costa was very good at drawing the pictures or illustrations.
“Romeo and Juliet”
I like this book because it is such a touching love story. I don't mind reading the book again and again. I wish it was my own book,but it's the book I borrowed from the school library. I was touched by the story when I read it.
