Shortly after arriving in England, Nat goes to bed ill and awakens transported back in time 400 years - to another London, and another production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Amid the bustle and excitement of an Elizabethan theatrical production, Nat finds the warm, nurturing father figure missing from his life - in none other than William Shakespeare himself. Does Nat have to remain trapped in the past forever, or give up the friendship he's so longed for in his own time?

If you're reading this, go read this book instead
Unfortunately, the summary says this book is for grades 4 -- 7. It's been many years since I was that young, and I love the book. If you've ever lost someone you loved, and struggled with the loss, read King of Shadows. Don't let the Shakespearean play throw you: that's only the framework for the real story. Jim Dale's southern accent isn't his best, but hey, it's Jim Dale, so it doesn't matter. I've read almost all of Susan Cooper's books and enjoyed them all, but I like this best.

A Wonderful Story Brought to Life by Jim Dale
Where does King of Shadows rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Have you listened to any of Jim Dale’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I initially chose this book because it was read by Jim Dale. He absolutely brought the book to life! He took a wonderful story, and elevated it! I can't wait to listen to it again!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I enjoy listening to audio books while driving to and from work. I actually sat in from of my home for half an hour, because I couldn't turn if off.
