Look Hamlet

Barbro Lindgren & Anna Höglund

Look Hamlet, Hamlet not happy.

Look Hamlet is a darkly funny picture book version of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy. Hamlet is a sad teenage bunny who must deal with his mean new stepdad and his doomed love with fox-Ophelia.

With her quirky writing, one of Sweden’s most famous children’s books authors, Barbro Lindgren has teamed up with Anna Höglund whose moody yet sweet illustrations transform the classic tale to something new and unique.

"[...] Look Hamlet is a small masterpiece, and it makes you cry out for more interpretations: Make all the classics like this, accessible and knowingly! But this is not just a great start for those who want to meet Shakespeare for the first time, but also a surprisingly strong interpretation for those who’ve been spending time with Hamlet for a long time.”
