This reader's theater script called The Land of Twisted Time takes readers on a journey with six havoc causing children that stumble into the Land of Twisted Time-- where all sources of time (calendars, clocks, etc.) have been twisted. The children must put time back in order and gain an understanding of the poor choices they've been making before it's time to be home for dinner!
