A basic text for any would-be puppeteer. Really two books in one! First a book of puppet craft which details how to construct paper-mache' puppets, cloth, movable-mouth puppets, how to build a folding puppet stage and instructions about using puppets in performance. Many pages of action illustraions and patterns to help guide the user. The second half of the book includes a wide variety of puppet playscripts including Old Testament themes, chuch life plays, Christian behavior, Bible lessons, specials days and other topics. The best possible book for a beginner or for a teacheer who is instructing others to do puppetry. A book for every church school library.
