The play “The Book That Saved the Earth” is full of imagination.
In it, the different characters like Think-Tank, Noodle, Oop, Omega, etc. play as the Martian living beings, the time set of the play is 25th century. The play tells us in detail as how the book successfully saves the earth from the Martian invasion.
Think-Tank who is the mightiest and the most brilliant among all the Martians is the Commander-in-Chief. Think-Tank conducts the manned space probe in order to ask them their position. At this Think-Tank asks them to show him the place closely.
In fact, they are in a library full of different books. But they fail to understand where they are. Then Think-Tank tries to show his intelligence and tells his crew that the thing in question is a sandwich. Then one of the crew members even eats the comer of a book to confirm the views of Think-Tank.
After some time Noodle suggests Think-Tank that it is not for eating but for communication with ears. After some time Noodle again suggests Think-Tank that it is not for ear communication but for eye communication.
Then they open the books and try to read them but they fail to understand the language. Omega opens a big volume of‘Mother Goose’ and tries to read it. Noodle asks Think-Tank if the chemical department has given them the vitamins to increase intelligence and then read the sandwiches.
As Oop starts reading the books of nursery rhymes to Think-Tank he feels trouble. He leaves the idea of invading. Instead, he tries to save himself from the invasion of the earthlings. He orders his crew to leave the earth at once and he himself runs to safety.
