      A great way to introduce kids to Shakespeare and the exciting and dangerous times of Elizabethan England is to offer them well-written, exciting, adventures involving a young orphan thief who is sent by his master to steal from Will Shakespeare and company. Gary Blackwood has written a trilogy of stories involving 14-year-old Widge, an indentured servant in the beginning who has been taught shorthand by a former master and is now called upon to use this skill to copy Hamlet for a rival theatre g [...]

      The Shakespeare StealerI enjoyed this book because you became part of the book. The book not only told a story about someone with split loyalties, but yours were split as well. You do not know whether you want Widge to carry out his previous master's orders or to become an actor.I also enjoyed the last passage because I think it is very meaningful:Though I hadn't quite learned a new language, as Julia was doing, I felt almost as though I had. For every ken and wis and aye I had dropped from my v [...]

      I found this trilogy at a library sale for three dollars, I didn't read a lot of it, it said Shakespeare so I took a risk. I didn't realize until I looked through it that it was a young adult book. I actually really enjoy ready young adult literature, and it's a time period I enjoy reading about, so I was very interested in this book. I liked the premise of the story, the characters were interesting and I felt that they were realistic. I liked the book, but I didn't love it. The storylines were [...]

      The Shakespeare Stealer trilogy by Gary Blackwood is a lot of fun. Widge is an orphan living in Shakespearian England, and his skill at shorthand gets him thrown in with the company of actors that does their thing at the Globe theatre (I’ve been there, whoo!). Various adventures ensue, with Widge ultimately becoming a full-fledged member of the company and a burgeoning playwright. The cast of actors at the Globe are quite likeable, Shakespeare himself was fun to see, and Widge, with his endear [...]

      This was so much fun to read. As a Shakespeare fan, I loved learning about Elizabethan theatre and the genesis of the Bard's works from a fresh perspective. A quick read and definitely worth the investment of all three books. It's refreshing to read some quality YA lit that has absolutely nothing to do with vampires or spoiled teenagers in Manhattan. Well played, Gary Blackwood. Pun fully intended.

      Interesting look at theater in Shakespeare's time. It would be a nightmare having only your lines and trying to perform smoothly with all the other characters.

    • Jenn says:

      Great little series! I love Widge! Blackwood really does a great job creating the feel of the time period.

    • Kimberley says:

      Great book for young adults. Could be a great segway in to an otherwise routine unit on Shakespeare. Loved the characters, especially Widge and Julia.

    • Tiffany says:

      I don't really care for books that take place in this time of history so I put it down half way through.

    • Kevin says:

      Pretty good read. Not too heavy and I cared about the charactors until the end. Early teen or tween.

      This is my Harry Potter. This is my Lord of the Rings.

      This book is great because it is sad and heroic
