Drawing on a variety of Indian puppet-making traditions, this humorously written book encourages children to experiment with materials and ideas. It shifts the focus from the finished product to the process of accidents, discoveries and mistakes by which puppets can be made. All puppets featured in the book are made by children from everyday materials. Besides step-by-step instructions, it also contains information on traditional puppetry and a section on scripting and performance.
