    It is hard to review this book without mentioning "Horrible Histories." The style is very similar but this does to into more detail about what we know and don't know about Shakespeare. It is easy to read and informative. It gives extra details about a few of his plays and the time he lived in too. I would recommend this as an accompaniment to Shakespeare's work to those just starting to learn about him. It is hard to review this book without mentioning "Horrible Histories."

    Funny way to learned about William Shakespeare's work and life, but this book is for teens and I read this when I worked as a teacher at a middle-grade school and discovered this book at the school's library. I learned many things about Shakespeare' private life, the theater at England during Sheakespeare' life and his contribution for England's and the world's culture.

    Well, I'm on a bit of a Shakespeare roll right now. We've been studying Much Ado About Nothing in lit class and I just went to a university lecture on Romeo and Juliet so I'm interested in anything that will give me some insight and any useful resources that I can pass to my students. If you haven't read a Dead Famous book, you should. They are a lot of fun. This was my first in the series and I think I will probably pick up a few more.

If you haven't read a Dead Famous book, you should. They are a lot of fun. This was my first in the series and I think I will probably pick up a few more. If the others are like this, I can say they are filled with interesting facts and funny cartoons. It takes history and makes it an enjoyable read. It is a quick 176 pages and you will enjoy most of it if you are interested in Will and the time in which he lived. I highly recommend it for anybody who is studying the plays. BTW, I felt this book had the potential to get 4 or even 5 stars, but it got away from what it was doing well and created filler to make up quite a few pages. For example, I don't think the book needs a lot of the play summaries (especially the history plays) and it shouldn't have wasted so many pages on the authorship question. That said, the good stuff is great and well worth reading. With a little more effort, Donkin could have made this fabulous! Anyway, you are still going to enjoy it- especially if you are one of my lit students. I'm going to give this book 3.5/5 stars.

    The book ends with, "...Ben Jonson wrote:'He was not of an age, but for all time.' He couldn't have known how true those words would prove to be." One of the simplest biographies of one of the most famous personalities of the world. There has always been an unsaid gap between Shakespeare and I. His plays were famous but I hardly knew anything about either the playwright or his works. All I knew was that he is said to be the greatest of all times.

This book, finally, bridged the gap between us and introduced me to Shakespeare in the easiest possible way. Light humour, liberal use of anecdotes, detailed description and interesting sketches only add to the joy of reading it. Thanks Meris, for if it wasn't for you, I might have never considered reading it. And to theweek.in/thebard for bringing me this close to the master playwright.

    A YA book designed to teach kids about Shakespeare life, career, and works. It has a number of inaccuracies and reasonable guesses presented not as reasonable guesses, but as facts. It occasionally finds significance in these non-facts. The book is entertaining and well done in every way, except factual, but the facts matter.

    Hilarious!! What with the true stories and the not-too-true ones, and may-be-true-may-be-not "our Will's diary", readers are brought back to Shakespeare's time, free to enjoy the rigors and fun of theater's life (^,^) I like the cartoons too~ (^,,,^) comical beyond measure~~ Hilarious!!

    My preteen daughter got it from school library and I got so much hooked to it that I got it reissued. A wonderfully written book, the best introduction the kids can have to the greatest writer of all the times. Even adults can learn a few interesting facts. Perfect read for a rainy day.

    Funny, Educational and overall a good way to get information that you won't normally find in a book. Funny, Educational and overall a good way to get information that you won't normally find in a book.

    Probably the simplest biography about Shakespeare! It really taught me a lot about him and everything he did in a non boring way, full of funny comments and little drawings.
