The pen is mightier than the sword, but whose pen is the mightiest of them all? Who wrote more, Charlotte Brontë or Fyodor Dostoyevsky? Who created more memorable characters, Jane Austen or William Shakespeare? Whose life was more eventful, Cervantes or Byron? Pit 32 of the greatest writers of all time against each other with these illustrated cards.

About the Author

Lesley Buckingham lives in the fertile glades of the English countryside where the enchanting surroundings of her garden studio permeate her illustration work.

Praise For…

The pen, as they say, is mightier than the sword. But some of those pens are mightier than others. Who wrote more, Charles Dickens or Fyodor Dostoyevsky? Who created the most memorable characters, Jane Austen or William Shakespeare? Who has the most commercial success while alive, Sylvia Plath or Virginia Woolf? And who was the most scandalous, Colette or James Joyce? There are two versions of this game, Modern Authors and Classic Authors. In both, players pit 32 great writers against each other. A great game for anyone who loves books. Parents@Play
