Books: Astro-Nuts: An Intergalactic Comedy by Manjula Padmanabhan (Age: 12 + years)
This is a fantastic play that includes aliens, characters from across the world and even animals who talk! The play is set in the future but touches upon many current issues that are familiar to us today. The story is about the General Assembly where people from different countries have arrived to discuss problems and find solutions. The drama introduces 11 humans from various parts of the world and six non-human representatives, who have travelled to attend this assembly of the Galactic Union.

In the story, members fight each other over petty matters that gradually throw light on several contemporary issues in a fun and witty way. Issues like toxic waste and climatic concerns are discussed as each one puts forth their selfish interests. The book also tells you how to make costumes for the characters in the play, in case you want to stage the play in school or at home.
