Macbeth and Son by Jackie French

Jackie French has combined fascinating historical knowledge with classical literature to weave a delightful and gripping novel. Macbeth and Son is a story combining a contemporary Aussie kid's life and a historic tale over 1000 years old. It questions the nature of the truth and demonstrates kinds of courage.
It is one of the shortlisted books for younger readers in the CBCA Awards 2007. I would highly recommend it.
