The illustrations in this book are lovely, but what I enjoy the most about this book are the many ways yo can go through it: 1. There are quotes on each page. 2. There are a few sentences under the many hansome illustrations. or 3. You can simply enjoy the great story. Generally, I feel it is a fantastic lead into many various literature-based activities: acting out a play, building a model of the playhouses or dressing up as a favorite character.

A great book about Shakespeare's life and work. All that he did for playwrights during his lifetime and even after his death. I enjoyed this book, because it actually did introduce some facts that not all books talk about with Shakespeare. I would like to use this book in my classroom.

I had to read this book when I was in the 5th grade. It was just bad! All its about is how the very popular theatre named "The Globe" was made and how the majority of the plays preformed there were those of William Shakespeare. It was just a bad book overall!
