Storyline - Shakespeare travels around the world
I’ll put a girdle round about the Earth in forty minutes!
Fly! Fly! Fly! Flying freely is my dream!
Shakespeare - One day, the most famous literary playwright in the United Kingdom suddenly encountered exhaustion and couldn't write anymore! In his room, he held the feather pen and scratched his head. What should I do? Who can come to save me?
Puck, the cute and mischievous fairy in "A Midsummer Night's Dream", could fly faster than the speed of light. He saw Master Shakespeare frowning and started whirling in anxiety... In the magical ancient book, Puck finally discovered a big secret: In 50 minutes, set off with the children to make friends from three different countries, collect their tokens, and fly back to London. Give the tokens to Master Shakespeare, who would then regain inspiration to write more interesting stories for the children.
Hence, Puck and the children flew out from the London Theatre in the UK and arrived in America, Africa and Asia. One after another, they encountered famous people and their lives. They experienced different cultures, studied local music and art, and heard refreshing stories. Although challenges arose, the adventures expanded the children’s vision. When they returned to the summer forest with the fruitful harvest, Sir Shakespeare, with their help, created an exciting new chapter!
