*"monos" is short for "monologues." These 72 monologues have 100-200 words, perfect for short performance pieces in class, in a talent show, or in the living room. There's a variety of genres, none too serious, ranging from contemporary to sci-fi to fantasy. The topics are an eclectic assortment, appealing to many interests. For instance, there's The Chef, a child TV star who makes unique cookies; the kid who's called a butt who finds a hilarious way to diffuse the situation; and who hasn't asked, "Where's the remote?" Here are some of the titles of the monologues: Algebra, Yuck; Blood; Candy Store; Destroy the Invaders; Football; Grocery Shopping; I Just Want Chocolate; In Trouble for Talking; Me Vs The Fly; No Chocolate for Me; Pirate Treasure; Running; The Secret Frog; The Shampoo of Death; Trivia for Sale; Zap. The book also includes a few basic stage terms, tips for performing monologues and tips for memorizing.

About the Author
Marian Scadden reads a lot, and likes to write in theater-esque and other genres, such as Young Adult fantasy, Middle Grade stuff, and Picture Books. She loves playing board games with her family, especially when she wins. Marian graduated in Children's Theatre from Brigham Young University decades ago, more or less. Writing books and plays is not quite as long as that. She started writing plays so she wouldn't have to pay royalties when directing them; she started writing picture books to see if she could and she advanced to novels in 2009 when she participated in National Novel Writing Month. It's kind of exciting.
