Horribly Famous: William Shakespeare and his Dramatic Acts

A Horrible look at the brilliant Bard, with chuckles on every page. You’ve probably heard of William Shakespeare. He is dead famous for: writing a few plays, having a bit of a way with words, and creating characters like romantic Romeo and murderous Macbeth. But did you know that our Will did a seven-year vanishing act, nearly had his head chopped off by the Queen, and nicked an entire theatre? Yes – even though he’s dead, Shakey’s still full of drama!
