Product description

William Shakespeare lived 400 years ago, but he’s still the world’s most famous playwright. Who was this man who had such a way with words? How did the politics of the time, and its queens and kings, affect his writing?

  • A vivid full-colour look at the world’s most famous playwright
  • Uses short chapters to help children learn to locate information
  • Supports the history curriculum and builds non-fiction reading skills
  • Perfect to read alongside the Big Cat Shakespeare play retellings
