This is young William,
His mind all ablaze,
Who stays up all night
Writing poems and plays.
And this is a book, unforgettable and wise, that applauds inspiration, creation, story, and the world and works of William Shakespeare.
Illustrated by Caldecott Honor artist Anita Lobel, All the World's a Stage pays tribute to the act of turning words into art.
