The Shakespeare Stealer

The Shakespeare Stealer The Shakespeare Stealer by Gary L. Blackwood

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a very enjoyable book. It is a great introduction to Shakespearean times, without being too pretentious for middle-schoolers. Will Shakespeare himself actually makes a few appearances. It has dueling and suspense, so it is appropriate for both boys and girls. Widge, the main character, is an orphan apprenticed to a man who orders him to steal Shakespeare's play, Hamlet. He is off on a dangerous adventure.
