Was after a quick, cheeky read as I was falling behind schedule on my challenge and saw this wee thing nestled on my shelf. It's a whimsical little Q&A with The Bard himself. I pretty much knew all the info in there but the presentation is interesting and this would be a good introduction to anyone interested in what we know of Shakespeare, his life and work.
