About the Author

Michael Rosen is an award-winning author and anthologist of books for young readers including Classic Poetry: An Illustrated Collection, illustrated by Paul Howard. A lifelong Shakespeare fan, Michael Rosen says of this book, "When I was a kid, I was often taken to see Shakespeare's plays, and my parents helped me to get hold of what was special about Shakespeare. I've written this book in hopes that I can do something along the lines of what my parents did for me."
