This book has short plays that can be performed by only one person because there are only two characters on stage at any given time. There are patterns for the characters in each play as well as instructions and patterns for several different types of puppets, along with suggestions on how to finish them with hair and clothing. Even though the plays can be presented by only one person, there are enough parts for several kids if they each take one. My elementary students have used the plays for readers' theater and have also presented the them with puppets for other classes. The plays are simple and echo familiar fairy tales, but they are interesting enough even for 7th and 8th graders to enjoy. This book is great for anyone who teaches or presents to children.
