Love it

Steve Harrison, English teacher at Quinton House school, Northampton, never leaves home without The Pocket Companion to Shakespeare's Plays (Mitchell Beazley and Reed International Books pound;7.99).

"An ideal reference for theatregoer, student 'and even children coming to the plays for the first time' as Dame Judi Dench says in the foreword.

"For each play there is a plot synopsis, noteson principal characters and a resume of performance history. It also contains a critique on the poemsand sonnets, a history of Shakespearean theatreand a selected glossaryof Elizabethan English.And it fits in yourpocket."

We pay pound;40 for each recommendation published. Write to Love It, TES Friday, Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield, London E1W 1BX. Or e-mail: friday@tes.co.uk
