Jane Sutcliffe, "Will's Words: How William Shakespeare Changed the Way You Talk"

When Jane Sutcliffe sets out to write a book about William Shakespeare and the Globe Theatre, in her own words, she runs into a problem: Will's words keep popping up all over the place! What's an author to do? After all, Will is responsible for such familiar phrases as "what's done is done" and "too much of a good thing." He even helped turn "household words" into household words. 
But, Jane embraces her dilemma, writing about Shakespeare, his plays, and his famous phrases with glee. After all, what better words are there to use to write about the greatest writer in the English language than his very own?  As readers will discover, "the long and the short of it" is this: Will changed the English language forever.
Backmatter includes an author’s note, a bibliography, and a timeline.

JANE SUTCLIFFE is author of Stone Giant: Michelangelo’s David and How He Came to Be, The White House Is Burning: August 24, 1814, and more than two dozen other books for children. Jane lives in Tolland, Connecticut.
