Overview

"A wonderful collection that kids and teachers are sure to enjoy."
— Robert Munsch

What's even better than reading a Robert Munsch story out loud? Acting in one!

In this second collection of plays based on the stories of Robert Munsch, experienced playwright Irene N. Watts has adapted eight more of his best-loved tales for the stage, classroom or backyard! Complemented by the fun and familiar artwork of long-time Munsch collaborator Michael Martchenko, each story is presented in an accessible play format, making it easy for children to act out their own versions of Munsch's familiar adventures.

These lively, interactive adaptations include suggestions to encourage audience participation, as well as casting ideas that can involve the whole class. Readers will also find innovative, uncomplicated (and inexpensive!) ideas for props and costumes. The stories included are:

  • David's Father
  • The Fire Station
  • From Far Away
  • I Have to Go!
  • Jonathan Cleaned Up —Then He Heard a Sound
  • Pigs
  • Show and Tell
  • Something Good.

Editorial Reviews

Canadian Teacher Magazine - Irene N. Watts
If you're looking for an exciting new drama unit or are trying to entice a reluctant reader to add her voice to class read-alouds, this is the book for you! Also consider getting the first book in the series, Munsch at Play, which was equally delightful. Just like the first publication, the second act is worth every dollar and guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. Children young and old will love performing reader's theatre, skits, or full plays—even without an audience. I've used these plays to engage struggling readers, to pull adolescents out of their theatre shell, and to entertain Canadians during the bleak months of winter.
