Living in a world full of unpredictable creatures—beasts, beggars, witch hunters and actors—William Shakespeare’s family must find a way to cope with their changing Elizabethan world. With four legs, a keen eye and a sharp tongue, Shakespeare’s dog tells the story of how the Stratford rogue became the world’s most famous playwright.
