Learning on their feet! Great! September 6, 2007
Reviewer: M Patterson from QLD, Australia  
Couldn't get myself to put them down. I am not kidding!

Carol Glynn has written the exact books that I would have written had I had the energy or talent to do so..... I LOVE them!!!!

I look at a huge amount of drama texts all the time but because they are too specific I rarely find one that I could recommend to people when they ask. I am already recommending these.... Good on her for brilliant ideas!
