    One of the best children’s authors and illustrators, Marcia Williams, has written comic books of Shakespeare’s plays. They’re great fun and make Shakespeare easier to understand. Why not read Marcia’s version of The Tempest?

    Your task is to draw or make Prospero’s magical island.

    You might like to include:

    Magical Creatures
    The Sea

    Time to get your thinking caps on... be as creative as you like. You could use books and images to investigate what an island might look like.

    You can use a photograph, scanned picture or video as evidence.
