Subject:        "The Shakespeare Stealer"

This is Elizabeth Kastor's review of the Washington Post's KidsClub
Summer Book Selection, a story of a 14-year old who must join
Shakespeare's company and steal "Hamlet" by copying it in cypher. The
review gives away none of the plot, and in fact devotes most of its
space explaining that Shakespeare said things like "Forsooth!" but also
contributed many everyday phrases to the language. But I do rather like
her succinct description of Hamlet: "a prince who struggled to respond
to the crimes around him."
