As the daughter of a theatre professor, I grew up around Shakespeare’s works. My dad put on an annual Shakespeare play in my hometown, and it was a popular summer event for all ages. So when William Sheepspeare (Wild Bios) (released April 9 from Silver Dolphin), I was quite interested!
This punny tribute to Shakespeare shows the youngest readers about the Baa-rd – all in fine sheep language. I know children will enjoy the book’s language, with its references to “Lamblet,” and “All’s Wool That Ends Wool.”
As I’ve said before, I am not a huge fan of punny texts. And whereas this book provides a solid introduction to young readers, its animalistic language minimizes Shakespeare’s contributions.
A fine read, William Sheepspeare earns three stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
