You may already know that William Shakespeare was a playwright, but did you know he learned nothing but Latin at school? Or that he couldn’t even spell his own name? This graphic retelling of Will’s story gives children a visual snapshot of his life and the world he grew up in, while educating them on everything from Elizabethan theatre to the power of words.

Great Lives in Graphics reimagines the lives of extraordinary people in vivid technicolor, presenting 250+ fascinating facts in a new and exciting way. It takes the essentials, dates, and achievements of each person's life, mixes them with lesser-known facts and trivia, and uses infographics to show them in a fresh visual way this is genuinely engaging for children and young adults. The result is a colorful, fascinating, and often surprising representation of that person's life, work, and legacy. Using timelines, maps, repeated motifs, and many more beautiful and informative illustrations, readers learn not just about the main subject of the book but also about the cultural background of the time they lived in.
