Kamishibai Man

Today ds read The Kamishibai man by Allan Say. This is what he wrote from the story.
Kamishibai began in the 1930’s. 

 The theatre is a small wooden box transported by bicycle.

 It contains drawers of paper figures,different pictures that tell a story or are shown as a story is being told.
 The story is unending always ending in a cliffhanger. 

As well as telling the story the Kamishibai man also sold delicious homemade sweets. The story was a drawcard for people to come and buy the brightly coloured assorted sweets
