What's better to get teenagers enticed to read then letting them know they're going to read a story about suspicion, anger, hysteria, and aliens? Brought to you by Wake Up Sunshine, The Monsters are Due on Maple Street, is a simple and affordable literary guide to this Twilight Zone classic.
At the story’s onset, we are taken to the unassuming locale of Maple Street. Things go amiss and the street experiences a power outage. Instantly, the street’s residents are suspicious of each other and what could have possibly caused this occurrence. The notion of alien lifeforms comes up and suddenly everybody is a suspect. The characters believe that the aliens could be among them, all the while appearing human!
So, let your students enter the world of the paranoid and unknown and watch the literature take hold!
