The strength of Wood's book lies in the matter-of-fact approach to creating plays for children.

After a brief challenge to raise the current standards of children's theater, Wood delves into discussions about how young audiences differ from adult audiences and common characteristics among all children audiences. He explains stories and themes that work fantasy within reality, myths and legends, the quest, etc.

Play Directing: Analysis, Communication, and Style by Francis Hodge, Michael McLain

He also examines important ingredients of successful children's plays, such as humor, scale, magic, justice, audience participation, and silence. This discussion is followed by examples of his own work he is the author of over thirty plays for young audiences, including an adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Witches and the process of refinement that took place from script to production.

While most of Wood's logic in these chapters is sound, some of his ideas seem a bit underdeveloped, such as his claim that children relate strongly to characters derived from toys. Rather than giving reasons or examples why this might be, he merely mentions it and moves on.

His discussion on children relating to animal characters is a bit more developed, and he backs up his theory with potential reasons why. Additionally, while one example of the refinement of script to production would suffice, Wood gives us two, neither particularly different from the other, which only makes the chapter seem unnecessarily drawn out and repetitive.

The visual, to me, is a vital element in this work.

Oct 11, Emily rated it it was amazing Shelves: Amazing book on story and story-telling. This book really did not just open my eyes in ways of telling a story with pictures, but also storytelling overall. The story told in the book kept me coming for more.

Glebas not only shows how to approach storytelling through storyboarding, but also discusses many other aspects of writing and directing. While the approach is quite traditional very Disney , I found it to still be useful for my own work.
