Synopsis

Sam Stars at Shakespeare's Globe by Pauline Francis

When Samuel discovers the Globe Theatre, he longs to work for the greatest writer in England, and when he cheekily tries to act, Master Shakespeare decides to employ him. One by one, Samuel plays Cobweb...then the grandson of Coriolanus...then a young Roman boy in Julius Caesar, but Master Shakespeare says he is still not ready to play the part he wants most: Juliet. Then one day, Sam gets a lucky break. But has he got what it takes to be one of the finest players in all England...?

Reviews

I was mesmerized by the magnificent illustrations in this book ... It is an excellent introduction to Elizabethan London ... I recommend it to any parent, teacher or young child aged 7 or 8 who wishes to learn about Shakespeare's theatre. English 4-11
