Shearer, B.W. Wilberforce Wilson and the Magic Fountain. Encore Performance, 1999. ISBN 1-57514-352-6. 16 pp. B+ K-3 Reviewed by Nathan Christiansen Wilberforce Wilson, a young boy in the second grade, begins a new school that is extremely different and scary for him. The teachers seem mean, and the principal is even more intimidating. All the students are trying to get at him, but Wilberforce doesn't let this influence his own behavior. When he finds a magical fountain, things begin to change. This charming play lends itself to a young audience, for they would enjoy much of what was shown. Costumes might be difficult for portraying the animals, but everyone else would be easy. Scenery could be set up without many difficulties. This is a fun play children can identify with.
