Shakespeare's Scribe (Shakespeare Stealer)by Gary Blackwood
Synopses & Reviews
When an outbreak of the deadly Black Plague closes the Globe Theatre, William Shakespeare's acting troupe sets off on a tour of England. Widge, the orphan-turned-actor, knows that he'll be useful on the trip. Not only does he love the stage, but his knack for a unique shorthand has proven him one of the most valuable apprentices in the troupe. But then a mysterious man appears, claiming to know a secret from Widge's past-a secret that may forever force him from the theatre he loves.
"An exciting, well-written tale that is sure to leave [readers] clamoring for more." (School Library Journal, starred review)
When an outbreak of the deadly plague closes the Globe Theater, Shakespeare's acting troupe sets off on a tour of England--and finds some real drama long the way.
