Reviews

"It's a joyful celebration as much as an aid to teaching and learning and affectionate as it is scholarly" * Teach Secondary * "A charming and deliciously meaty book, it's a must for every primary and secondary English and Drama classroom in my view, and essential for the school library too." * Susan Elkin, The School Librarian * "It is not only scholarly and comprehensive, it is hugely enjoyable" * Books for Keeps * "A modern and dynamic approach to Shakespeare's language usage" * Editing Matters * "Stunningly useful book" * The Guardian * "Guaranteed to enhance enjoyment and understanding of Shakespeare's work." * Parents In Touch * "Savvy navigation tools, skilful indexing and clever colour coded referencing." * The BookBag * "Sometimes you find a book and think, 'Why didn't someone do this years ago?' The answer is probably that no-one else could have approached the job or seen it through to completion so magnificently. This is much more than a valuable resource to make Shakespeare's vocabulary accessible to students; it is so crammed with delicious snippets that it is a delight to browse." * UK Literacy Association (UKLA) *
