The Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue – a MomReadIt Review!


There are so many great all-ages graphic novels coming out. One of my favorite up-and-coming books is The Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue Presents Macbeth, written by Ian Lendler and illustrated by Zack Giallongo.

Stratford Zoo

The Stratford Zoo looks your ordinary, everyday zoo – until the Zoo closes for business and the animals gather for some downtime. This particular evening, the Midnight Revue is putting on a play – Shakespeare’s Macbeth – with the lion, naturally, playing the part of the Dane King. What follows is an wildly funny graphic novel that offers younger readers the chance to enjoy the story of Macbeth, where Macbeth must eat the king, and where blood is replaced by ketchup (you can’t eat a king – or a host of people that stand in your way to the throne – without some kind of condiment, right?).
