This is an awesome book. Elise Broach covers the topic of Shakespeare and the controversy surrounding the question of, who is Shakespeare? with great articulation. This book is great for ages seven (7) and up.
I went through this on audio, read by Jennifer Ikeda, who does a superb job with the narration and the different characters.
I listened to this with family members. One who always likes to ask when going through a book, who is the bad guy? This book opened the opportunity to explain about protagonist and antagonist and that the “bad guy” may not always be clear or there may not be a bad guy per se.
This book also helped to introduce Bob Dylan and some of the Bard’s plays.
What is Shakespeare’s secret? You have to read it to find out.
