I Want to Fly: A Play for Children in Four Parts by Allel Kheroufi

I Want to Fly is an intelligent piece of literature and a wonderful way to expose children to the world of theater.

The prestigious 2016 Bologna Children’s Book Fair (BCBF) featured Allel Kheroufi’s I Want to Fly: A Play for in Four Parts, the Children story of Homer the duck, whose greatest dream was to fly to the sun. The BCBF, an international event that promotes publications for children and young adults, was held last April 4 to 7 at the Bologna Fair Centre in Italy.
 
Kheroufi used his background in drama and directing to craft this endearing tale of little Homer as he tries to realize his dreams, braving obstacles and meeting interesting characters along the way.
 
Amazon.com top reviewer Grady Harp writes, “Kheroufi has taken the idea that children love to play make believe, and so he respects their theatrical interest and skills and has provided a script that is not only colorful, warmly humorous, and fantastical, but it also carries with it some very important psychological, social, and parenting issues that, in addition to applause at the end of the performance of this play, the participating children have learned the all-important concept of nurturing dreams, making them into realities. As the author says, `To dream is to have a future,’ and this concept pervades this charming and hardy little play in four parts.”
