What Were Will's Words?
Sayings like "money's worth" and "of a sudden" can be traced back to his work. He created household terms by mixing meanings, then writing them into his plays. As Will's popularity grew, they stuck.
Will's Words by Jane Sutcliffe is such a cool book. Not only is it interesting to find out how many terms William Shakespeare came up with, BUT the added bonus of locating him in every magnificent illustration is extremely entertaining. Watch out, Waldo! The artwork is outstanding, and I can only imagine how much fun the illustrator, John Shelley, had filling in the details. I was lost for hours, and you will be too trying to find Will. But, I promise it's not a wild goose chase. ;)
Has anyone else read Will's Words? Or another book by Jane Sutcliffe? We'd love to hear your thoughts.
