A jolly jaunt around the town where Shakespeare was born! Stratford-upon-Avon may be a cute tourist town today - but its history is far from pleasant, with fatal fleabites, bloody battles and brutal beheadings to see! In this gruesome city guide, Terry Deary takes you on a gore-tastic tour of the streets of Stratford-upon-Avon, exposing all of its most scurrilous secrets. Discover the rules of the Olympic sport of shin-kicking! Find out why locals like to lob cheese in the river! Learn which of Shakespeare's characters was baked in a pie! Plot your path to the past with the frightful map, and pay your respects at the brilliant Bard's grave. Then brave the horrors of spooky Sheep Street - home of an awful axeman, a weird witch and possibly the most haunted house in England!
