This little theatre, re-creating a moment from the book, was used as a window display at Waterstones Bookshop in Stratford-upon-Avon when we launched the Monsters book there.
By pure coincidence it so happened that the Shakespeare Theatre in town, (The RSC), were showing The Tempest at the same time, the very play the story of Monsters was taken from.
It looks like we may be able to repeat the coincidence at some time soon as the RSC are putting on Twelfth Night this year, just as we are due to be launching ‘A Tricky Letter’!
About the Author
Like any parent, when Melissa had children she wanted them to enjoy all of the things she had considered to be important and wonderful in her experience. In her adult life she had come to love the works of Shakespeare, his still relevant insights into life, his colourful humour, and his ability to use the English language so adeptly.
