In 1597, Shakespeare debuted his newest play, a tragedy about a young Italian couple whose families were sworn enemies.

Romeo and Juliet quickly became one of the most famous couples in literary history, and this play became one of Shakespeare's most performed shows.

But did you know that much of Romeo and Juliet's story was adapted from tales by other writers?

Learn all about how William Shakespeare's dynamic and romantic teenage duo sprouted from the Italian story of The Tragical History of Romeus and Juliet in 1562 and grew into adaptions like West Side Story and even Gnomeo & Juliet in this nonfiction book for young readers.
