A FRESH REINTERPRETATION OF A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM BY THE AUSTRALIAN CHILDREN'S LAUREATE His name is Fairy Peaseblossom, but he'd rather be known as Pete. Pete prefers pizza to sugar plums - and wants to choose his own life too. But how can he when his role is to serve the fai...ry queen, Titania? This is Shakespeare's delightful comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream reinterpreted with an army of Amazons, a sea serpent and a selkie called Gaela, who luckily for Pete makes the best pizza in the world. It is also a story of the intrigues of the fairy court, of vampire plots to dominate the world and impossible loves that might just come true. Not with enchantment, but when two hearts thread together making a magic of their own. PRAISE FOR JACKIE FRENCH'S SHAKESPEARE SERIES 'Jackie French enriches Shakespeare's plot with well-rounded characters, convincing additional people and interesting back stories ... an absorbing novel' - Magpies magazine on Third Witch 'The tenderness and beauty French injects into the text is mesmerising ... Evocative scenes, tangible smells and sounds combine to immerse the reader in a carefully designed plot that both stays true to the classic play, and also uncomplicates things for the younger reader' - Kids' Book Review on I am Juliet
