"An excellent resource for a teacher who wants to expose students to a variety of literary genres while at the same time immersing them in creative writing. ...At the root of Cobb's method, of course, is a notion that is at the heart of good teaching at all levels. Skilled teachers build on the familiar, introduce new but related concepts, and then allows students the freedom to experiment with what they have learned. In this regard, we can all learn from Lisa Kaniut Cobb."-The Quarterly of the National Writing Project
"After reading this book, the reader will be inspired to work with a group of students to create and perform different types of theater. Recommended."-Library Media Connection
