Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Step back to Shakespeare's time in this thrilling adventure story which weaves togther a real and an imaginary past. Pip sets off to London to search for his father and to prove that he can become a famous knife fighter, like him. But London is a scary place and soon Pip finds that his life is in great danger. Luckily, he makes two very unual friends - including Shakespear himself. Who is Julia Eccleshare ?
