really liked it
bookshelves: mark-harmon

this was a lot more fun that i thought it would be. its written to be performed by children, as a series of monologues, mostly, so everyone gets a nice part and no one has to be the tree or the rock or anything. so if you have 17 or so kids (jen, im looking at you), you can perform this in the privacy of your own home or take to the streets and entertain the whole neighborhood. i actually learned a few things about daily life in medieval times, and selected a part for myself (barbary, the mud slinger), should an 8-year-old become ill or stage-frighted. fingers crossed for stardom...

Jen My vagina is not a clown car!!!!! (just a moped)


But I'll think about it. I need to up the ante after Halloween last year (we won the fair city's costume prize- it was Connect 4 and a pumpkin t-shirt).

karen point taken, but it wont be fun to only do 4 pages of this book... get breeding! get your sisters kid involved! i dont see a part for a 3-week old, but im sure its a smart baby.

Jen I'm done chica. No mas.

My sisters have three among them- so, there's promise. Maybe in a few years.

karen so thats 7 accounted for... you can probably snatch 10 kids from unsuspecting parents... start your own cult of medieval thespians. think on it, milady.

message 5: by Jen (new)

Jen I will- right after the valium break.

karen none for me thanks - its paper-writing time.

message 7: by Andrew (new) - added it

Andrew Love the idea of a bunch of your children performing like this, a lot better then TV. Builds strong families.
