“If offers the students a fun and enjoyable way to write and express themselves. It demonstrates to students that good writing can come to life.” Teacher from Morgandale

“This was absolutely terrific! I love the performances every year. The kids were very entertained. It inspires the students to write and they learn it is OK to misspell words.”  Teacher from Zablocki

“It offers an entertaining opportunity to experience professionals passionate about their craft, engage in humorous and compelling performance right in our own school. It’s one of my favorite assemblies each year!” Teacher at Cooper
