Details: Product Description Puppetry is an exciting, flexible, malleable art form which can engage the creative forces of children or adults. Puppets can not only tell a story, they can be used to enhance the curriculum, present an idea or a concept in a compelling way, or teach any number of necessary skills. Children and adults presenting a puppet play are given a sense of their own inventive power. This reference work offers an A to Z view of working with puppets. From the most basic strategies of advertising and marketing your productions; to assembling the puppets out of household materials such as paper bags, cereal boxes, or gloves; to the more elaborate sculpting of armatures. Help with stages, curtains and props are also discussed along with the history of puppetry. Numerous photographs and illustrations give a visual of many of the finished products. This work concludes with an annotated bibliography and index. Review " excellent resource"-- Booklist; "well-written articles"-- School Library Journal; "useful"-- ARBA; "recommended"-- The Australian Library Journal. About the Author Carol R. Exner is a children's librarian at the Parkwood Branch of the Durham County, North Carolina, library system. A member of Beta Phi Mu, the honor society for library students, she lives in Durham.
