Three kids get lost inside Shakespeare’s book and must help Hamlet finish his story in order to return home in this silly middle school series!

Dear Reader,

You are reading this because you expressed interest in the Get Lost Book Club.

Get ready to take a journey through time to a really smelly place known as Denmark. There, an evil uncle is trying to dethrone a prince who sees ghosts. Moat serpents will try to eat you. There may be a few sword fights, and a haunted graveyard. Your only allies are the world’s most reluctant reader, Kyle Word, his annoying neighbor, Halley, and his baby brother, Gross Gabe. Help them defeat Uncle Claudius and make it to the end of the story, or you’ll be trapped in
Hamlet forever!

Intrigued? Worried? Downright terrified? You should be. But if you’re ready for an adventure, step right up and follow me. It’s time to get lost in Fakespeare: Something Stinks in Hamlet.

About the Author

M.E. Castle is a New York-raised writer and actor currently living in Washington DC. He is the author of the beloved Clone Chronicles, which introduced the world to Fisher Bas, his clones, a flying pig, and a large supporting cast of robots, aliens, and a very proper talking toaster. When not writing, he can be found performing the works of Shakespeare onstage, which has given him the expertise necessary to create the utterly scholarly and serious series, Fakespeare.

Daniel Jennewein has been drawing since kindergarten, where he could mainly be found drawing skulls and hooks, to the irritation of some adults. Currently, he works as a freelance illustrator and art director in Frankfurt. His books include the Fakespeare series (written by M.E. Castle), Is Your Buffalo Ready for Kindergarten? (written by Audrey Vernick, 2010) Teach Your Buffalo to Play Drums (2011), Chick-O-Saurus Rex (written by Lenore Jennewein, 2013).
