Cooper, Susan. King of Shadows. Margaret K. McElderry, 1999. ISBN 0-689-82817-9. $16.00. 186 pp. A 4+ FI Reviewed by Vicky M. Turner Nathan Fields thinks he is a good actor, even though he is young. His confidence and his name are two of the reasons that Abry chooses him to act in his Shakespearean theater. In Shakespeare’s time, no women were allowed to act, so young boys were dressed as women, and also used as acrobats and fools. When the company goes to London to perform in the New Globe Theater, Nat goes to only to be whisked back into the year 1599 to act in the first Shakespearean plays. This book is well written, and I hope that children will get as caught up in this historical fantasy as I did.
