By Christopher Lloyd

Experience the most amazing moments in Shakespeare’s life in this fascinating, over-sized timeline reference.

Developed in association with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, the timeline is uniquely broken out into each of Shakespeare’s 38 dramas, along with a record of key dates in his life. An easy-to-read chronicle, written in the form of newspaper articles, highlights key moment, such as the first sale of his works, Abraham Lincoln’s fondness for the Bard, and the rebuilding of the Globe Theatre. Other features include a page of letters to the editor, a fifty-question quiz, and a pocket magnifier to make it easier to explore all the timeline's details. Perfect for 6-14 year olds, and drama lovers of any age!

About the author

Bestselling author Christopher Lloyd began his career as a journalist with the Sunday Times newspaper. Then, while camping with his family, he had a critical realisation: even with a 1st class degree in history from Cambridge University and experience as a science writer, there was so much about the world he didn’t know. So, he set out to write books that zoom out and tell the big stories, opening readers’ eyes to how seemingly unrelated events fit together and showing them multiple perspectives on the world, all in highly engaging prose and matched with lively illustration and photography. Now, with several books in print, including the bestselling What on Earth Happened? and Absolutely Everything, Chris divides his time between writing books and delivering lectures and workshops to schools, literary festivals, and a wide range of other venues around the world. He lives in Tonbridge, Kent, UK, with his wife and two adorable terriers.
