The Monster Under the Bed: Band 11/Lime by Kevin Dyer, Sarah Horne

Ben's feeling sick, or at least that's what he says. Really, he doesn't want to see his friend Vince. But when he finds a monster under his bed he has an idea - the two swap identities for the day, with hilarious results! This play, by Kevin Dyer, in partnership with Polka Theatre, explores familiar issues and will work wonderfully in performance. * Lime/Band 11 books have longer sentence structures and a greater use of literary language. * Text type: A playscript. * A feelings mountain on pages 30 and 31 charts the rise and fall of emotions that the two main characters feel throughout the play, providing a wealth of speaking and listening opportunities. * Curriculum links: Citizenship: Taking part - developing skills of communication and participation; Art and Design: Portraying relationships
