With the plague still hanging loose in the air of 16th century London, the populace could do with cheering up. The man for the job is a new playwright on the scene, William Shakespeare. You start work at his 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 cann! Humourous cartoon-style illustrations and speech bubbles bring the characters to life, while informative captions explain processes or chrological 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 complete glossary and index featured in every title makes The Danger Zone an ideal introduction to the conventions of n-fiction texts for young readers.
