We all know the story. An earnest teen, who just wants a new truck to take out his girl, his dad to stand up to his boss, and to rock out at a show, gets caught up in his wacky scientist friend’s scheme to steal some plutonium so he can time travel. Things go awry when said teen (Marty) gets sent back in time instead and lands in all sorts of hot water. His mom has a crush on him, he has to train his dad to stand up for himself, and the town bully (boss in the future) is on his case. He also accidentally almost erases himself from existence. With the help of the “Doc” from the past, Marty must right the wrongs and get Back to the Future! But what happens when you put the most famous writer of all time’s stamp on it?

A delightful mix of ’80s fun and loquacious language. Check out more on William Shakespeare’s Get Thee Back to the Future! by Ian Doescher here below.

Book Review: William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Mean Girls (Pop Shakespeare Book 1)

William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Mean Girls
Pop Shakespeare Series (Book 1)
Paperback | Kindle Edition | Audiobook
Written by Ian Doescher
Illustrations by Kent Barton
Inspired by the work of Tina Fey and William Shakespeare
Publisher: Quirk Books
Release Date: April 23, 2019

The William Shakespeare’s Star Wars series of books has been a big hit for Quirk Books, where writer Ian Doescher adapted the highly popular installments of the Star Wars saga into the style of a Shakespearean play. If only high school English requirements could be this fun!

Therefore, it’s not surprising that the publisher is now branching out with a new Pop Shakespeare series that will tackle other popular films in the same manner. And what better way to launch this spin-off series than with a story that takes place in high school?

For William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Mean Girls, the author playfully gives Tina Fey’s 2004 big-screen teen comedy Mean Girls the Shakespearean treatment, where, sadly, “fetch” still hasn’t caught on. But when it comes to Doescher’s ability to cleverly and faithfully convert our favorite movies into Shakespearean masterpieces, the limit doth not exist.

Oh, Quirk Books, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. A seventh film necessitates a seventh adaptation in the vein of all things theatrical. I present to you, dearest reader, William Shakespeare’s The Force Doth Awaken: Star Wars Part the Seventh! Follow the tale of Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron whilst they struggle against the darkest of dark, the First Order. The tale is old to many, but the cycle begins anew as we begin a new trilogy of storytelling that explores the loss of heroes and the search for knowledge.
