The students wrote the original plays contained in the book as part of the Young Playwrights’ Theater In-School Playwriting Program. At the event, a group of fifth grade student actors performed four short plays from the book: Dog and Animal Control by Derek Iruegas, Revenge of the Wolves by Sarahi Farias, Toto and the Rainforest by Grace Santana, and Untitled by Daniel Zamora. Each of the fifth grade students received a copy of the book and additional copies are available to order on Amazon.com.
