From Booklist:

Ah, those hilarious, boring, and/or befuddling plays put on entirely by kids—what would growing up be without them? The Cool Performances series offers six titles on all aspects of mounting a production, from costumes to makeup to (uh-oh) special effects. This volume focuses on the primarily cardboard and paper objects that motivated youngsters can turn into backdrops, set pieces, and props. Photo examples set the bar high (though many are achievable), and the text breaks down the creation process into bite-size chunks. It’s fairly challenging stuff, but the information is metered out so efficiently that patience, not artistic ability, will be the key to success. “Believable Backdrops” is the best chapter for getting the biggest wow-factor from the least amount of labor. But there are plenty of other projects here, too: poster-board wands, tissue-paper bouquets, tinfoil cutlasses, and plenty of set pieces starring the cardboard box. An index and a surprisingly challenging glossary make the curtain call. Grades 3-5. --Daniel Kraus
