"Tales from Shakespeare" is an English children's book written by Charles Lamb with his sister Mary Lamb in 1807.

The book reduces the archaic English and complicated storyline of Shakespeare to a simple level that children can read and comprehend. However, as noted in the Author's Preface, "his words are used whenever it seemed possible to bring them in; and in whatever has been added to give them the regular form of a connected story, diligent care has been taken to select such words as might least interrupt the effect of the beautiful English tongue in which he wrote: therefore, words introduced into our language since his time have been as far as possible avoided."

Mary Lamb was responsible for the comedies, while Charles wrote the tragedies; they wrote the preface between them.

The 21 stories adapted from the selected plays are:

The Tempest
A Midsummer Night's Dream
The Winter's Tale
Much Ado About Nothing
As You Like It
Two Gentlemen of Verona
The Merchant of Venice
Cymbeline
King Lear
Macbeth
All's Well That Ends Well
The Taming of the Shrew
The Comedy of Errors
Measure for Measure
Twelfth Night
Timon of Athens
Romeo and Juliet
Hamlet, Prince of Denmark
Othello
Pericles, Prince of Tyre
Julius Caesar
