From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5-Chrisp approaches the topic as though readers were tourists in old London. A cast of characters is introduced, some real, some fabricated, who would have frequented the theater. They describe their lives in and about the Globe. Richard Burbage explains how plays were staged and produced. A groundling tells how gangs of young apprentices search for entertainment, choosing bear baiting, football, and throwing apple cores at the players. An apple seller describes life when the plague comes. Illustrations and photographs are excellent, showing details of the building and the people. The large font makes reading less intimidating. Marginalia includes facts about the history of theater as well as life in 17th-century London. A final two-page spread shows the re-created Globe today and attests to Shakespeare's continued popularity. Aliki's William Shakespeare & the Globe (HarperCollins, 1999) is for the same audience, but focuses more on Shakespeare's life in relation to the Globe, and the re-creation of the theater in the late 1990s envisioned by Sam Wanamaker. This book will be useful where interest is high.-Carol Durusau, Newton County Public Library, Covington, GA
