Charming illustrations open the door to the world of William Shakespeare. Icicles hang by the wall, children's noses are red and raw, and Joan is busy in the kitchen stirring the pot. It is winter in Shakespeare's England. Shakespeare wrote a number of songs for his own productions. Among the most charming is "Winter Song," performed at the end of his romantic comedy Lover's Labor's Lost. Melanie Hall's illustrated version of the poem is filled with bold and beautiful images that bring to life the wintry world of Elizabethan England.
