One night two young couples run into an enchanted forest in an attempt to escape their problems. But these four humans do not realize that the forest is filled with fairies and hobgoblins who love making mischief. When Oberon, the Fairy King, and his loyal hobgoblin servant, Puck, intervene in human affairs, the fate of these young couples is magically and hilariously transformed. Like a classic fairy tale, this retelling of William Shakespeare's most beloved comedy is perfect for older readers who will find much to treasure and for younger readers who will love hearing the story read aloud.

I always like this one.

This version of the play was fantastic for my sixth grade class; the left column on each page that detailed what was happening in the language was super helpful, and my class actually enjoyed the play (also because it's a bit silly and comical, so the scene were definitely more vibrant).

This has always been one of my favourite Shakespearean comedies, so it'd be hard to give it a low rating ever unless someone massacred it entirely.
