This series of original plays presents familiar stories in a new format and lets young readers become part of the action. The plays can be used in a multitude of ways: for reading or performance, with a small group or a large cast, in 45 minutes. Director's notes with inspired tips on staging and performing, and a handy, photocopiable script render the series as useful as it is delightful.
