Mr Tail-Less

Our class is reading an amazing book called ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’ by Roald Dahl!
And this term we are doing inferences so we have inferenced Fantastic Mr Fox.

‘Down in the valley, there were three farms. The owners had done well’
I infer this means that they were rich and they had done a good job looking after their farm.

‘I can smell these goons from a mile away. I can smell one from the other’
Fantastic Mr Fox implied, I Inferred that he meant to say they were crazy and mean!

What does ‘glum’ mean?
It means to be sad or unhappy.

What are some inferences that you can make about the farmers?
They are very mean and don’t like the fox so they try to kill it with their  guns.

An Amazing ANZAC Tale

Can you ever imagine what it would be like to be at Gallipoli? Well now you can when war was declared on the 5th of August 1914 many brave men enlisted thirsty for adventure, though once they got there war was nothing that they had ever imagined. Best mates Roy Martin and Wally Cardwell are in for a surprise that may hit them pretty hard when the Turks start bombing. They sail across sea’s to find a wrong landing, grey skies and grey land.
More lives lost, more friends lost this is a heart felt story that has been told with much effort.

I rate this book 4/5 stars because it has great language, it is very descriptive and I love the pictures. What I dislike about this book is I would make the writing a bit larger.

Blueback Book Review

Come and join Abel and his mother Dora Jackson on an adventure to help and save the sea. They have a lot on their hands, his mothers age, a troublesome fish and mysterious people coming and over fishing.

They live on a big property that lots of people want to buy, but Abel and his mother will not let that happen so they push on to save the sea, their home and Blueback.
This is a great book that I recommended for ages 9 and up.
I rate this book 4 and a half stars out of 5!20150413-132927.jpg

One of the authors messages are to stand up for what you believe in.
I really enjoyed this book and I hope you do too.
