About the Author
Malini Roy works as a freelance researcher and writer in Frankfurt, Germany. She would love to be able to create graphic novels. But a chronic inability to shape any form of visual art, other than that allowed by a blob of plasticine, has left her thrashing in the nether regions of writing and adapting scripts, such as a creative sequel to a short story by Bengali author Rabindranath Tagore (forthcoming, HarperCollins India, 2016). Time and again she bugs comics artists in order to produce the odd academic article, published in essay collections such as Textual Transformations in Children's Literature (ed. Lefebvre, Routledge, 2013). A resident of New Delhi, India, Naresh Kumar describes himself as a seeker who is continuously trying to learn as much as he can, and his art is an expression of his curiosity towards the world. A firm believer in humanity, Naresh brings an experienced hand to the drawing board, and his photo-realistic style captures the subtle emotions of his characters. His work features in a number of titles from Campfire, which include World War Two, Genesis, Julius Caesar, Martin Luther King Jr., and Sinbad.
"The timeless tale... unfolds with straightforward briskness. Shakespeare's text has been liberally but judiciously cut, staying true to the thematic meaning while dispensing with longer speeches and intermediary dialogues... Illustrator Kumar pairs richly detailed interiors and exteriors with painstakingly rendered characters, each easily distinguished from their fellows through costume, hairstyle, and bearing... A solid introduction for budding lovers of the Bard." -- Kirkus Reviews
