Task 1 - This week, we would like you to read the next two chapters of the book you have chosen. Then, in your Reading Journal, create a comic strip showing the main events of one of those chapters.
Task 2 - We would also like you to take some time to explore The Book of Hopes, edited by Katherine Rundell (author of The Explorer, Rooftoppers, Wolf Wilder and more).
"Award-winning children’s author, Katherine Rundell, has today launched The Book of Hopes: Words and Pictures to Comfort, Inspire and Entertain Children in Lockdown.
Completely free for all children and families, the extraordinary collection of short stories, poems, essays and pictures has contributions from more than 110 children’s writers and illustrators, including Lauren Child, Anthony Horowitz, Greg James and Chris Smith, Michael Morpurgo, Liz Pichon, Axel Scheffler, Francesca Simon, Jacqueline Wilson – and Katherine herself.
The Book of Hopes aims to comfort, inspire and encourage children during lockdown through delight, new ideas, ridiculous jokes and heroic tales. There are true accounts of cats and hares and plastic-devouring caterpillars; there are doodles and flowers; revolting poems and beautiful poems; and there are stories of space travel and new shoes and dragons.
The collection is dedicated to the doctors, nurses, carers, porters, cleaners and everyone currently working in hospitals."
