This book is for real: the space saga adapted into a five-act play with iambic pentameter, couplets, and so on. My book jacket of the week for sure (in Cloud, Quirk Books, ISBN 9781594746550).
I love School Library Journal's endorsement:
It is most likely to be appreciated by snarky AP English students and drama club members, but an imaginative English teacher could find ways to use it in the classroom to engage reluctant readers of Shakespeare. May the verse be with you!
