The Play's the Thing: A Story about William Shakespeareby Ruth Turk, Lisa Harvey (Illustrator)
The year was 1569 and the place was Stratford-on-Avon, just ninety miles from London. A little boy watched a company of traveling actors perform on a makeshift stage. No one could have known that the child, whose name was William Shakespeare, would one day become the most famous playwright in history. This is the story of the man who wrote Hamlet, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, and many other plays that have been performed and enjoyed again and again for more than four hundred years. Anticipated month of publication.
