Read an Excerpt

Then Malvolio entered, his face aghast.
"I've come from Olivia, so out of my way!
Just listen to what she has to say.
Olivia's had enough of this noise
Now put away your silly toys."
Malvolio left them in a stupor.
Sir Toby yelled, "Party pooper!"
Maria agreed, "The guy's a jerk!
I have a plan for him that will work.
We'll make a love note written in code.
When he figures it out he will explode!
It will be from Olivia, and it will say
That she loves Malvolio more each day.
We'll meet tomorrow to do the trick.
She'll think he is a lunatic.
I can't wait," Maria said
"But now it's late. I'm going to bed."
