Grade 4--8-- The first section of this book gives precise instructions for constructing a puppet theater and describes, in general terms, how to make sock and oven-mitt hand puppets. These instructions presuppose a certain amount of craft skill, and the well-drawn full-page illustrations that clarify them begin 20 pages later, necessitating much turning back and forth. Readers would have to photocopy either the instructions or the diagrams to be able to use them together. Part II presents five plays with props and stage directions. The adaptation of Androcles and the Lion is the best; the others are full of slapstick and wild chases. The best parts of the book are the directions for making a soundtrack with music and dialogue for a prerecorded show (practical, but it takes away any chance of serendipity and responding to the audience) and the stage and performance technique hints that follow each play. There is no list of mail-order supply houses, nor are generic names given for certain types of glue, etc. Also, there is no bibliography. --Marcia Posner, Federation of New York and the Jewish Book Council, New York City
