Didn't read the bio, only skimmed the book for Nov.-Dec. 2020 Children's Books group themed discussion.A juv. bio. that includes excerpts, sonnets, and artistic photos by Marcel Imsand. I liked Sonnet 130 (esp. after reading Romeo's infatuated exaggerations) and I appreciated learning that Proust got Remembrance of Things Past from Sonnet 30.
This was well done for what it is, a simple introduction to both Shakespeare's life and poetry for young people.
I think this book could have been way better. I was not pulled in by book at all. I think William Shakespeare's story was not worth reading to me.
I loved reading about Shakespeare. Great to read it in language for younger people to understand.
