I chose this book because I didn’t know about William Shakespeare.  After reading it, I learned he was an actor, and he wrote famous plays that are still read by people today.  The book tells you about his life. You learn everything about him. For example, I learned the he moved to London because he wanted to be an actor.  He worked hard and made a lot of money.  I think these books are great if you want to learn about a famous person. I think kids my age will enjoy “Who Was William Shakespeare?”
