Master Skylark is a dramatic tale of adventure set in the time of William Shakespeare, presented here with all of the original illustrations.
Tom Davenant, Robin Getley and Nick Attwood are three friends whose daring and mischief results in several happy circumstances: they observe some momentous events and even meet several of the most famous and important figures of the era. The fast paced, swashbuckling tale for children is a tour de force of Elizabethan culture for our young adventurers and the reader.
The trio venture across the countryside, forests and cities; they sail the rivers; and meet remarkable people, learning and experiencing much on their journeys across England. The vibrant descriptions of Elizabethan society give the book its own unique tone, and the author makes an effort to keep the dialogue as authentic to the period as possible, with Shakespeare his greatest source.
The edition of Master Skylark with illustrations by Henry Pitz first appeared in 1922. It one of a series of successful historical novels by John Bennett, and remains by far his most popular and widely read work. The superbly drawn chapter headings and drawings that pepper the text add further to the narrative, transporting the reader to this majestic era long ago.
