William Shakespeare. Sooner or later, everyone learns that name. He was one of the greatest storytellers who ever lived. Comedy, tragedy, history, fairy tales—Shakespeare wrote about them all in his brilliant plays that were performed at the Globe playhouse by the greatest actors of his time. This is the story of Shakespeare's world in Elizabethan England 400 years ago, and the famous Globe theater. It also tells the present-day story of Sam Wanamaker, the American actor whose lifelong dream to rebuild the Globe in London, where it first stood, became a reality.

Aliki has created a meticulous five-act masterpiece you won't want to miss!
