Things that Go Bump, Volume 2 : Plays for Young Audiences is an anthology of recent Canadian plays for elementary school age audiences. It is a companion volume to fall 2009's Things that Go Bump, Volume 1: Plays for Young Adults. Through humour and great characters, these six plays explore large issues with an entertaining verve.
