About the author:
Bob Egan is way older than he thinks he is. Raised in Belmont, Massachusetts, educated at nearby Harvard College, and re-educated on the streets of Greenwich Village, he has been a cowboy, a copywriter, and is presently a real estate agent. Ok, so he was never a cowboy. Let him dream... His other books, long out of print and for good reason, include the first guide to New York bookstores, THE BOOKSTORE BOOK (1979) and FROM HERE TO FRATERNITY (1985) a lighthearted guide to Greek life... Bob lives with his wife, Louise, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan 175 miles from his brother Jim, who illustrated the book in Newport, Rhode Island... Bob's hobby is tracking down the spots where famous record albums were photographed. The photos on his website have been seen by over 8 million people.

Shakespeare and the Million Monkeys

Authored by Robert Egan

A “Wonderful and Clever” story for ages 9 to 90.

Can a million monkeys, putting type randomly into a Gutenberg printing press, come up with a more "wonderful and clever" sentence than the great William Shakespeare?

Queen Elizabeth I bets her Lord High Treasurer that they can’t – and sponsors a three day contest at the Globe Theater to prove it!

Watch Shakespere go mano-a-monkey against the million monkeys to see who wins.

With a story that encompasses the world of London circa 1600 – from Hampton Court Palace and the Globe Theater to Stratford-upon-Avon – it’s a thought-provoking introduction to probability, a witty send-up of history, and more fun than a galleon of monkeys.
