'Into the Story 2 delineates the context in which story drama 'fulfils mandated curriculum, stimulates learning and generates interest and engagement'(Miller and Saxton 2016: 2). Miller and Saxton accomplish this through articulating their current theoretical approach to planning story drama followed by a series of ten story drama lesson plans that can serve either as demonstrations of what this work looks like in context or as practical drama lessons that can be implemented by classroom teachers or other drama practitioners.'

-- Jonathan Jones, Journal of Applied Arts & Health

'The stories chosen for exploration have a high literary value and are well illustrated, often beautifully so. The narratives are powerful and moving focusing on, for example, age and memory loss, social inequality, poverty, political oppression, the holocaust, and the threat to the environment. In this the work recognises children's ability to respond sensitively to challenging and sometimes disturbing themes and issues. '

-- Andy Kempe, Drama magazine
