King of Shadows carries us to London along with a troupe of young American actors to perform A Midsummer Night's Dream in the new Globe Theatre. But through the magic of Susan Cooper's imagination, the journey takes us through time, where one of the young actors discovers he has become a friend of, and actor alongside, none other than William Shakespeare.

    " I will admit that Susan Cooper is probably the reason for my love of Shakespeare. The short passages quoted in her "Dark is Rising" Sequence were my first glimpse at the Bard, but this book cemented my fascination. Admittedly, the "American" protagonist sometimes sounds slightly English, but it's a magical book nonetheless. "

    " Written for a younger audience, this book is a beautiful introduction to Shakespeare. It is just as good now as it was when I first read it many years ago. As an adult, I appreciate and understand the historical details much more than I could as a child. "
