The Boy Who Fell into a Book is Alan Ayckbourn's wonderfully inventive play for children - fast-moving, fun and full of special effects.
This children's play is both inventive and entertaining, ideal for use in schools for the Literacy Hour strand of primary teaching for Key Stage 2 - both to read aloud and perform.See all Product description

It is a great piece of childrens' theatre, full of possibilities for acting and staging.
Kevin falls into the book (maybe he's asleep, maybe he isn't) and is trapped in a disused oven with Rockfist Slim, his favourite detective. The two have to make their way through a series of books on Kevin's shelf before they can make it back to Kevin's bedroom. As if that weren't enough, what with haunted houses, dayglo kiddy's characters and near death experiences on a staircase in "Kidnapped", they also have the ultra evil Monique close on their heels.
One of the best episodes is in the fairy tales where they have to speak in rhyme in order for anyone else to understand them - excellent and funny.
I recommend this book to anyone who's into Ayckbourn, young people's theatre or production. Read it and put it on!
