LoveReading View on Cue for Treason

Geoffrey Trease is the master of historical fiction for children, and for many this is his best book. Set in Elizabethan England at the end of the 15th century it tells the story of fourteen year old Peter Brownrigg who, running from his home to escape his wicked lord, winds up working with a theatre company and apprenticed to William Shakespeare himself. There is treason afoot, and treachery and the story is full of drama, and a little romance too. It’s great to see this handsome new edition of this modern classic.  ~ Andrea Reece

He is best known for writing children's historical novels, whose content reflects his insistence on historically correct backgrounds, which he meticulously researched.
