AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This is the book for anyone who has ever been forced to study a Shakespeare play. It is Shakespeare in context; sexy, dangerous and a bit scary. Being smart and a little sneaky comes naturally to William Shakespeare - and he is about to make it bigger than he ever dreamed possible. Kids will be fascinated by 'mob football', 'bear baiting' and the gruesome details of Elizabethean London. They will engage with Shakespeare's plays on a whole new level. ' (Publication summary)
