I’ve been a huge fan of the Open Storybook Puppet Theater for years and had the pleasure of watching many of the shows at Children’s Fairyland. Both Lewis Mahlmann and Randal Metz are incredible puppeteers who’ve capture the imagination of hundreds of thousands of children over the years.
I can’t believe they’ve made this book! It’s a step-by-step guide on how to make puppets in the style of the puppet theater. Not only does it have pictures to guide you every step of the way. But it also has all of the patterns. As a person who creates many of her own clothes and costumes, the patterns are always the hardest thing to figure out. This book saves hours of trial an error by providing all of the patterns for you. It is incredibly generous of them to provide all of this information!
If you’re interested in making puppets, this is the book for you! It has everything you need to make hand puppets, rod puppets and marionettes. Absolutely brilliant!
