Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leah Hanson
"All the world's a stage," Shakespeare famously wrote, but what was his stage really like? In this book, Clements gives readers an all-access pass to stages of the past. The author deftly sketches a picture of England during the Renaissance, its kings and queens, and how "everything about Tudor London was theatrical." From mystery plays to bear-baiting, English men and women—no matter their place in society—loved good entertainment. When James Burbage built the first permanent theater in London in 1576, he hit upon an increasingly profitable idea. Two-page spreads detail who built the theaters, how they were constructed, and who put on the plays. Some of the best illustrations are devoted to what the theater might have been like as plays were staged—both from the actor's and the audience's points of view. In addition, sidebars show what props and costumes were like, as well as how sound effects were made. This book effectively provides interesting information about a place, while painting a picture of how that place figures into the lives of "all the men and women [who are] merely players" on it. Part of the "Building History" series. Reviewer: Leah Hanson
School Library Journal

Gr 3-5

These books provide guided tours through several eras of architecture, offering cultural context as well as clear discussions of the building process. Pyramid focuses on the making of Pharaoh Khufu's tomb while also providing an overview of how ancient Egyptians treated their dead, where the soul was believed to go, and how archaeologists have uncovered information about the civilization. The other titles are more general, describing the construction of similar cities, houses, theaters, and castles rather than focusing on a single example. There is no direct flow to the narratives; instead, each spread covers a topic, and students follow text boxes around the cartoonlike illustrations to learn about individual steps of the construction process, the culture, or the archaeology involved. The illustrations feature figures who sometimes explain their roles using funny comments that appear in speech balloons. Each book's time line includes recent discoveries.
