    Highly Recommended

    I looooove "Into the Woods". We performed this my Sophomore year in high school and we won the "Most Outstanding Stage Crew" Metropolitan Theatre Award for it. I remember whisper-singing the songs backstage. Great musical and story.

    BEST BOOK/BROADWAY PLAY IN THE WORLD!!!

    This was one awesome play and book. They did it in my school as the play and i saw it and it was awesome. If you are deciding on this book or another one buy this one. Even if you want to save ur money to solve world hunger you should scrap that plan and buy this book. Its worth the millions of lives you take away because of starvation. !!!LOL!!! Enjoy! i know i did

    What a show!

    The only thing better than seeing this show, is being part of the production. I was only a freshman in high school, but it was a theatre experience to remember!

    OVv3!<_>噸 or MoonShadow

    Review: Amazing! Good clifhanger! It's better than mine. I gave up two months ago. Anyway, I love it! In my opinion, it' s the BEST! Keep the good work up! <p>

    Suggestions: Make it a teensy bit longer, so it's about six pages. When indenting a paragraph, use &nbsp ; no spaces. You must include the ; or it doesn't work. <p>

    Application: <br>
    AcridKit/Paw/Spark <br>
    Golden &female with black tabby markings and deep amber eyes <br>
    Cranky, stubborn, loyal, and quick. <br>
    Mate: One time later <br>
    Crush: You choose. <br>
    Kits: You choose <p>

    Again, keep it up! <br>

    Reflections♦

    Hey, it looks great! Detailed and it wasn't too fast. I'm curious about Sparrowstar's eyes changing color, though. Is this a "powers" kind of fanfic? I wouldn't care anyways, I'd still read it just for the greatness of your writing and the plot. &sarf&#starf&starf&starf&starf <p> Emberkit/paw (you decide warrior name) <br> Jet black she-cat with toasty golden eyes and an orange tailtip. <br> (You decide prsonality, too, idc if she's a good guy or a bad guy) <p> -Reflections&#9830

    Emerald ♢

    This looks really good! Here's a character application:
    <p>Emerald(kit/paw/etc. You can choose her warrior name, if she has one.)
    <p>Emerald is a small black she-cat with bright green eyes. She prefers to be on her own, and isn't a cat of many words. In a group, she keeps her opinions to herself, and is a follower, not a leader. Her small size gives her a disadvantage in battle, so she tends to fear conflict. However, she is one of the fastest runners.
    <p>I hope she helps! Just one thing, please do NOT make her warrior name Emeraldrebel.
    <br>You can change anything about her.
    <p>-Emerald Rebel &#9830

    Into the Woods- Prologue

    The sound of pawsteps echoed in the forest, as two cats ran as fast as they could back to their camp. "SparrowStar!" The smaller of the two cats gasped, out of breath. "BlazeClan is on the edge of the border, and they plan to attack." SparrowStar, a tall, lean female cat, jumped up from the rock where she had been resting. The color in her eyes changed, from a deep blue, to a velvety orange. "MoonSky." She said, looking at the smaller cat. "You must awaken the others. Now, you must waste no time." MoonSky nodded, bounding off into the dens of sleeping cats. SparrowStar turned to CrimsonLeaf, the taller of the pair that had just ran through the forest. "Crimson, take all of the queens and apprentices up to the cavern on the inside of the mountain. And hurry, I can her the pawsteps."
    <p>
    Just as CrimsonLeaf reached the nursery, FawnTail, a young female, felt a change in her body. "Crimson. The kits. They are on the way." CrimsonLeaf's face was shocked. "A-are you sure? Fawn, this is a very horrible time." Fawn shook her head. Crimson nodded grimly, and lead all of the kits and queens out. "Fawn, find AshWisp. You need to get somewhere safe, now." Those were Crimson's last words before she bounded up the mountain.
    <p>
    FawnTail began to shake, just as AshWisp found her. "Fawn, my love. Are you alright?" Ash asked, worriedly leading her into the woods. "Ash, the kits are coming, and right now." Ash looked feircely at Fawn. "Fawn, we need to get you somewhere safe. Now." Ash gently touched noses with her, before swinging FawnTail up onto his back, and bounding up the mountainside.
    <p>
    So, what'd you think? Also, I'm looking for character apps, so if you wanna, write me some.

    Very well done

    Just finished playing the Baker last fall, and the score is very accurate to original orchestration and provides very complete piano accompaniment; an excellent addition to any Sondheim enthusiast's collection.
