This is a new title in "Young Reading Series Three", which is aimed at children whose reading ability and confidence allows them to tackle longer and more complex stories. It describes the life of the Bard, from his childhood in Stratford-Upon-Avon to his career as a playwright and performer and the influence which his great works continue to hold today. It is illustrated by Christina Uzner, illustrator of "Usborne Young Reading Series Three Leonardo Da Vinci", alongside photography of real-life locations connected to Shakespeare. It is developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, who is a senior lecturer in education and an early reading specialist from Roehampton University. It is beautifully produced hardback with ribbon marker.
