This book is hilarious. Well, it’s less of a book and more of a three-part flip chart, complete with a series of Shakespearean insults in each of the parts. Remember those old flip books you used to get where you could select a different head, torso and then legs and create a new character each time? This is exactly that, but for insults lifted from Shakespearean works. Brilliant!
Now, I must admit that I got this on a bit of a whim. I’m a Shakespeare fan as much as the next person, but this seemed too good to pass on. Not only that, but my partner is an English teacher and I knew that she’d love to use this in her lessons also. However, since this came for me in the post, I think I may have had a change of heart…she’s going to be lucky if she even gets to take it into school!
My favourites so far are: Monstrous – Tedious – Hag and Weedy – Lumpish – Strumpet.This is a brilliant little book that I honestly can’t believe hasn’t been made before now!
