Author(s): Duncan Ball
Launch title for the Second Look imprint of Christmas Press, this hilarious collection of nine short plays for kids, written by popular author Duncan Ball, ranges from a comic monologue to a play that can involve a whole class, and everything in between. It will suit use both in the classroom and on stage, as well as being lots of fun to read at home. Capturing the imagination and tickling the funny bones of young readers and actors, the plays range from spoof mystery to fantasy to school capers, all with a great zing of humour. The book also includes tips on staging the plays. Originally published as Comedies for Kids in 1988, this fabulous collection has been fully revised and updated by the author, and with a brand new play, The Teeth of a Vampire', added. The lively cover and internal illustrations are by well-known illustrator Craig Smith. Recommended for children aged 7-12.
