A Play For Puppets

KIRKUS REVIEW

JUDY: Well, what do you want, old lobster nose? PUNCH: A kiss, a smack, my pretty little Judy. JUDY (Smacks him): Well, here's a smack on the kisser. Subtle? Hardly. This is humor at an elemental, physical level, but in a form which anyone can enjoy. On every other page Punch and one of the other eight characters is provided with the text of a scene, each complete with a smack in the kisser, blow on the beanie, or the equivalent. The colorful pictures on the facing pages show a four part sequence of the action. The hand puppets, stage and props can easily be approximated. An excellent outlet for exuberant young comedians, and an ideal introduction to the always popular art of puppetry.
