Promotional Information

A step-by-step introduction to the skills and techniques required to master the art of puppet making. Features include excellent full- colour photography and use of modern methods and accessible materials. For ages 7+


Gr 4-6-- Crisp color photographs and a clearly written, well-organized text combine to make that rarest of things, an attractive puppet-making book with projects easy enough for most children to complete. A brief introduction lists necessary equipment and materials (most are inexpensive), describes the four major types of puppets, and offers some tips on staging plays. Twelve short sections give step-by-step directions for making 11 different puppets and a toy theater. Color photographs are well coordinated with the text and show each major construction step; the directions are arranged in numbered captions. Tips on manipulation are given in a few sections, but not all. Most of the projects presented are simple (basic sewing skills are required for some); the most difficult involves the use of modeling clay as a form for a papier-mache head. Some errors appear in the listing of organizations. The ``Educational Puppetry Resource Center,'' given as an information source, ceased operations in 1980 (the ``Puppetry in Education Resource Center'' is the correct name). The Puppeteers of America's publication is the Puppetry Journal , not the Puppet Journal. Yet as most puppetry books available are aimed at adults working with children, this title will be a welcome addition to school and public library puppetry collections. --Karey Wehner, San Francisco Public Library
