A comedy of mistaken identity and thwarted love, Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare's most beloved plays and is frequently performed and studied across the country. When Viola finds herself shipwrecked, she pretends to be a male servant and falls in love with Duke Orsino. The Manga Shakespeare interpretation, which incorporates fresh ideas and thoughtful settings, will introduce the classic play to a new audience of Shakespeare fans.

Praise for Twelfth Night
"This manga adaptation of Shakespeare's romantic comedy is as enjoyable as the Bard intended. Li's sweet shojo art style fits the story perfectly, and the pseudohistorical setting is fun. Her deft touch with facial expressions, comic inserts, and chibis (cute little cartoon characters) will help readers understand the Elizabethan dialogue. This solid entry in the Manga Shakespeare series will make a useful addition to class studies, especially for teachers reluctant to use adaptations with simplified language." - Booklist
