Danger, action, and mystery swirl around our scrappy young hero, Widge, as he returns to center stage in this book. The plague has shut down the Globe Theatre--forcing the troupe to take to the road. Excitement follows Widge at every crossroads: He faces a secret from his past, a sly new apprentice threatens to steal his roles, and the road back to London is treacherous. But there is a place for Widge in the troupe--right next to Shakespeare himself, who needs Widge to assist him with a new play commissioned by the queen!Readers who relished Widge's heroics in Gary Blackwood's first novel about Shakespeare's players will be entranced yet again by a tapestry of drama, history, and nonstop high jinks. All's well that ends well in this new Elizabethan escapade.

I liked the first one in the series, and alhtough this has a great premise, I found myself getting bored with it. I'm afraid I skipped ahead a bit, feeling a bit mired in the details, but then again, I like a lot of action and dialogue. I'm trying to read some "good" kids' books for my nine year old daughter, and I can't imagine kids staying interested long enough to finish it. Just my opinion.
