Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5Cheerful-looking series titles that will make a hit with budding performers. Eldin discusses finger and hand manipulation and presents an array of card trickssome easy, others more difficultthat would form a strong repertoire for any beginner. In addition there is advice about using dialogue to gain and keep the attention of audiences. Puppeteer offers brief information about producing a show and practical guidance for giving puppets individual expression and character. Instructions for making several types of puppets are covered along with directions for the appropriate theaters. The creation and manipulation of the ancient Japanese Bunraku puppet, not usually found in a book for this age range, is included. Both titles have full-color photos, helpful line drawings, and brief glossaries. Some adult help will be needed in using both of these books. Group leaders will find Puppeteer quite useful.Judith L.
