Can Lig and Bittle overcome the Muckety Muck and the Ooga Monster to find the place where they both fit in?
Lig is very tall, and Bittle is very small. They both wish they could find someplace where everything is just the right size for each of them, where no one will notice that they are different. When Lig and Bittle hear about Perfeckt Phitt, they set out on a quest to this wonderful place where all their problems will be solved.
My favourite part of the play was when Lig and Bittle [became] friends because i think it is nice to have friends
The audio play was very engaging and encouraged the students to use their imaginations
I liked when they found out it's ok to be different
We loved Lig & Bittle so much!
I liked when Bittle said she liked Lig the way he is
Kids Love the Lig & Bittle Audio Play!
The Lig & Bittle Audio Play is like listening to a podcast or an old-time radio adventure story. Created in four chapters, this play is perfect for listening to over several days and using your imagination to create Lig and Bittle’s world.
