- My daugher has to read this for a school grammar class. After getting over the fact it was an assigned reading book, she came to enjoy the book and actually liked it!
- If you are looking for the original Master Skylark book by John Bennett do not order this edition. This is not that book. This is "A Dramatization from the Story of the same name by John Bennett". I was very disappointed to find that this was not the book I had intended to order!
- This book was originally given to me as a child in the 1950s. I bought it to include in my childhood library to pass along cherished books to other children. It is a pleasant introduction to Elizabethan time period, Shakespeare, and the boy actors of the period supplied by an age appropriate adventure. I would recommend it for the 8 - 12 year age range.
- Was disappointed to see "Shakespeare's" spelled "Shaksperes" on the front cover of the book and inside on the cover page. How does a publisher make that mistake??? The rest of the book seems to be alright, though, including the original book's cover page.
- Our fourteen year old didn't like it because she felt it was repetitive in the storyline and she was disappointed in the ending because she felt Cicily and Nick should get married.Our eleven year old said it just wasn't her style.As a mom, who never read this before, I enjoyed it. It's not one I would have just picked up but am so glad we did. We were able to have many discussions comparing the times and relationships as well as feelings while reading the book.
- A very nice way to learn about life in England in Shakespeare's day. We meet the queen and even the bard himself. My kids tired of the old fashioned language from time to time, but still enjoyed the characters and the adventures.
- I had never heard of this book nor the author before I read it, but I thought it was a charming story. I don't know if any of it was based on actual events or not. I thought it was a quick read and good for middle and high school-aged kids to read.
