Book Description

5 April 2010 Horribly Famous
You've probably heard of William Shakespeare\. He is dead famous for: \- writing a few plays \- having a bit of a way with words \- creating characters like romantic Romeo and murderous Macbeth. But have you heard that William: \- did a seven-year vanishing act \- nearly had his head chopped off by the Queen \- nicked an entire theatre? Yes, even though he's dead, William's still full of surprises. Now you can get the inside story with William's secret diary, find out the news of the day in the Shakespearean Sun and prepare to be amazed as the curtain is raised on Shakespeare's most dramatic acts. Dead Funny \- Dead Gripping \- Dead Famous

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fantastic "Dead Famous" title. 20 Mar 2004
Format:Paperback
Ask your average 9 - 15 year old to read a book describing the life and times of William Shakespeare and you would be greeted by blank stares! However both of my children (11 and 14) couldn't put this book down. Andrew has once again captured the fun and light style that even the most reluctant reader will enjoy.Both of my children loved the Roald Dahl book in this same series and this is just as enjoyable.A good choice packed with lots of new facts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fabulous "Dead Famous" 29 Mar 2004
Format:Paperback
Following on from the other various titles of the "Dead Famous" series this is certainly a sure winner.Light, amusing writing style and fabulous illustrations cleverly hides the fact that this book is packed with lots of new information that even the most reluctant reader will enjoy.Entertaining and helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read 10 April 2004
Format:Paperback
It was the cover that caught my eye, an unusual picture of Shakepeare holding a scull. Could be interesting? At home a brief turn of the pages ended with me reading and enjoying the book. It is obviously well researched, written and illustrated with a sense of humour.
As well as Wills life story we get the maps of old Stratford and old London and plot outlines of several plays.
A rewarding read for adults an children alike.
