"Ann N. Black has rewritten classics for readers theatre appropriate for middle-school boys that lends itself perfectly to the all-male classroom. . . . Black has done a terrific job finding classic literature that particularly appeals to middle-school boys including strange, frightening, and action-packed stories. . . . Black includes a short background on each author and a few paragraphs for teachers concerning production notes for costuming and staging ideas. . . . Though the title explicitly states it is readers theatre for boys, girls could easily play a variety of parts in the selections, so it would be appropriate for any middle school library, speech or drama classroom, or any classroom that studies communication."-
Midwest Book Review
