This sequel to The Shakespeare Stealer does not begin in nearly as lively or compelling a way as the original. The first 25 pages felt as though the author had to force himself to get started. The pace drags, and there is little at first to intrigue the reader.

Once you get through Widge's life as an orphan and his apprenticeship at Dr. Bright's the book is action packed and forces you to read, and read, and read on. Unlike some books I have read in the past The Shakespeare Stealer has a very satisfying ending.

Didn't love it as much as the first,but still enjoyed it. Good amount of action (duels), some subtle mystery, and some interesting new characters. One new character I really could do without, though.Got really emotional and a bit angry at one point, but no spoilers.

Was frustrated with Widge's lack of confidence and ability to stick up for himself. It takes him way too long to fight for himself in this one. After what he'd been through that surprised me. The ending happened way too fast. Everything unfolds really quickly and I would have liked it the last four ages had a bit more time. More exploration of what the characters were feeling.

Loved Mr. Shakespeare in this. It's interesting seeing him in the process of writing one of my favorite plays. The inclusion of his brother Ned was a good touch to the story as well.

This sequel to The Shakespeare Stealer does not begin in nearly as lively or compelling a way as the original. The first 25 pages felt as though the author had to force himself to get started. The pace drags, and there is little at first to intrigue the reader. After a slow start, the author introduces an arrogant apprentice, a plague scare, and a mysterious stranger. The tale moves better from then on, and is a worthy sequel.

The date is 1602, and the great bubonic plague is just starting in London and its surrounding villages. For fear of contagion in the city, Widge, with Will Shakespeare's company, must leave London and take their stage performances on tour to the outlying hamlets.

For youths in grades 5-8.

Challenging reading for a 4th grader, but he really likes these books!

As a parent, I am happy to see him reading these instead of Goosebumps.

Loved this book, just like I did the first one! True to the era of the plot and full of humour!

I love the story but I found the 'accurate' dialogue a little wearing to read. But the setting, story and characters really make this a good book.

When my twelve year old son recommended The Shakespeare Stealer to me, I put it aside for a while, but, gosh, my son doesn't recommend books very often to his English teacher mom, so I read it. The colorful characters and swift-moving plot kept me involved, so I was ready when my son handed me the sequel. I found it even better! Swordfights, the plague, and a mysterious, suspicious character enliven the plot. And Will Shakespeare himself has more of a role. What a fun and I must say educational (the dreaded E word) read for this age group! I'm ordering the next in the series today!
Love Me
