there are quite a few people in the company such as Arby the teacher, boss leader, Rachel the voice coach, Gil, Eric, Ray, Hy, Ferdie and more. setting themes favourite section review of the novel There are many different themes in this book.
i think that this is a very magical and fantasy book, but it is also a real life kind of book.
In some parts it is modern and others it is very old and dates back a long time ago. this book is set in the years 1999 and 1599. Throughout the book the years change around and the settings swap from modern to old.
Sometimes its set in Elizabethan times. my favourite section of the book is when Nat is having a dream being pulled off the earth by some hands into the clouds an the stars, then being pushed back down to earth to live in a completely different centurie.
i like this part because it is very interesting and dramatic. I found this book very interesting and captivating. it can be a dramatic and magical all at the same time.
I think that this book was very well written and is very descriptive. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend this book to other people that like a good read. the company of boys He is still very nice though and treats all of his actors as family. Roper can sometimes be very mean. Nat sees him as a potential enemy and a kind of bully as he is not fond of him.
Roper however starts to like Nat after he saves his life by stopping him from choking.
Roper is also very mischievous and often gets Nat and the others into trouble He plays puck in a midsummer nights dream , Pindarus in Julius Caeser
