Master Skylark
by John Bennett
A Stratford lad, stolen away by the master-players of Lord Admiral's troupe of actors, is transported to London, where his singing charms even Queen Bess and wins for him the title Master Skylark. Through the twists and turns of an engaging plot in which Shakespeare himself plays a part, a vivid picture of life among the Elizabethan players emerges, furnishing context for subsequent reading of Shakespeare's plays.  Ages 10-12
315 pages $15.95
