BOOK RECOMMENDATION: FAKESPEARE - SOMETHING STINKS IN HAMLET
You are reading this because you expressed interest in the Get Lost Book Club.
Get ready to take a journey through time to a really smelly place known as Denmark. There, an evil uncle is trying to dethrone a prince who sees ghosts. Moat serpents will try to eat you. There may be a few sword fights, and a haunted graveyard. Your only allies are the world’s most reluctant reader, Kyle Word, his annoying neighbor, Halley, and his baby brother, Gross Gabe. Help them defeat Uncle Claudius and make it to the end of the story, or you’ll be trapped in Hamlet forever!
Intrigued? Worried? Downright terrified? You should be. But if you’re ready for an adventure, step right up and follow me. It’s time to get lost.
Written by M.E. Castle and illustrated by Daniel Jennewein, SOMETHING STINKS IN HAMLET is such a great summer read. The book offers an incredible introduction to Shakespeare--it includes full black and white illustrations, as well as a fast-paced read, complete with action and lots of dialogue. In fact, it reads like a play. Great idea, well-executed. Highly recommended.
