You Wouldn't Want To Be A Shakespearean Actor! Revised Edition

Jacqueline Morley

£6.99

In 16th century London, you start work as an actor at William Shakespeare's theatre, but soon realise it won't be easy. It'll take an excellent memory, a penchant for wearing dresses and a keen eye for avoiding rotten vegetables. But against all odds, you could do well here...just watch where you're pointing that cannon! Humorous illustrations bring the characters to life, while informative captions explain processes or chronological events. Each spread comes complete with a Handy Hint box, offering a clever tip on how to survive whatever ghastly situation you've found yourself in. A glossary and index featured in every title makes the "You Wouldn't Want To Be" series an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
