Once was a stunner. I'm eager for Then and Now. I loved Shakespeare Bats Cleanup. Good to hear that the sequel is just as wonderful.

I don't have access to a lot of galleys, but I did get a chance to read the new Ron Koertge "Shakespeare" and I think it does what I wanted-- extend my time with the character without requiring I have read the first book or remember it crystal clearly. New focus, new character, yes!
