WINKING KAT BOOKS is trying something new.
We created Winking Kat to publish original plays and musicals for young audiences that are more adaptable and affordable. Our goal is to coordinate with theater companies, schools, and libraries to offer a complete package that works with multi-cultural and literary lesson plans. Winking Kat offers many of our titles in one-act/ two act, musical/ non-musical, small cast/ large cast versions so we can work with you to fit your production needs. And we offer new and intriguing titles for children and young adult readers.
New adaptations of folktales and fairy tales from around the world - perfect for a multi-cultural curriculum. Original stories and plays to exercise math and problem-solving skills.
"Yeh -Shen; a Chinese Cinderella Story"
