Well skyping on Friday was a BIG disappointment. For some reason the Skype just would not connect and that was really frustrating for everyone. The good news is it is now fixed and we managed to chat with Mr. Keelty on Tuesday at snack time. There were no children there as they had all gone home! New Zealand is 5 hours ahead of us. Hopefully we might get to meet these super keen readers next week.
This week in BOB we are going to have a battle and also start writing some reviews of the books we have been reading. We need to look at some good examples of book reviews and then start to compose our own.
Read this by a Christopher who lives in the UK.
The BFG Written by Roald Dahl
Reviewed by Christopher
The BFG is one of the best and funniest books I have ever read. In it, a girl named Sophie wakes up during “witching hour”. In the distance, she sees a tall dark figure. As it comes closer, she sees it is something she thought didn’t exist; a GIANT! But Sophie not only sees him, HE sees HER. She under the covers in her bed, but still she is carried away with the giant to be sizzled like a rasher of bacon, or so she thought. But when she gets there, she discovers he is a Big Friendly Giant who blows dreams into sleeping children’s rooms. There are also nine other giants who eat people. So begins a wild adventure to save the children around the world from them. Sophie, with the help of the BFG, “whiz poppers”, “snoozecumbers”, and the queen of England, she saves the world from devastation.
I would give this book 10 out of 10
