In the sleepy English market town of Stratford-upon-Avon, poet and playwright William Shakespeare is at work tending his garden when a maiden and a lad stop by to announce that a merry troupe of players is approaching. The troupe, on its way to London, hopes to be invited to perform for the queen. The actors, however, are in need of a lively new play, and just maybe Shakespeare can help. In this fanciful and festive recreation of Elizabethan Stratford, Bruce Koscielniak brings the spirit of the times alive with fun-filled pictures and Shakespeare's own incomparable words, here made accessible to young readers.
