Play Time! A Selection of Plays by the Best-selling Author of THE GRUFFALO by Julia Donaldson

From the best-selling and much-loved author of The Gruffalo and other classic picture books, this title contains eleven fun-to-act short plays for primary-aged children (Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2) complete with helpful, simple guidance on target age, running time and cast!
