This is the entire, unabridged play brought to life as a vivid and engaging full-color graphic novel.

With its mix of real people who stumble into a fairy kingdom (with its own problems ) it is little wonder that this play is one of the best loved and most performed of all Shakespeare's masterpieces - and a firm favorite for outdoor theater on a warm summer's evening.

Synopsis:
Hermia is in love with Lysander but her father forbids them to marry, insisting that she marries Demetrius instead, whom Hermia's friend Helena loves. Hermia and Lysander escape to the woods, pursued by Demetrius and Helena. However there is trouble in the woods because the king and queen of the fairies, Oberon and Titania, have quarrelled. To spite Titania, Oberon instructs the mischievous Puck to squeeze the juice of a magic flower into her eyes while she sleeps, so that she falls in love with the first thing she sees when she wakes. He also instructs Puck to apply the same magic to Demetrius so that he will fall in love with Helena. However, Puck gets it all wrong...
