Next Thursday, 1st March 2012, is World Book Day!
Your challenge, this week, is to write a review of a book you would like to recommend to others. When you write your review, you might like to:
- Include a short quote from the book;
- Give a brief summary of the plot;
- Add a personal opinion (quote);
Here is an example to get you started:
THE WRECK OF THE ZANZIBAR – MICHAEL MORPURGO
‘We are leaving. I read it and I still can’t believe I’m writing it. We are leaving Bryher for good, forever. And, there’s others doing the same thing, all over the island. Even the chief is leaving. I think that’s what finally made up Father’s mind for him. He came out with it this evening.’
Laura had led a happy and content life on the Scilly Isles. But, in 1907, times became hard and soon the family were faced with financial woes as well as the devastation caused by severe storms. Following the disappearance of her brother, Billy, who left the family home to follow his dream of a life at sea, and with her father determined to leave the island, Laura had almost given up on any hope of life returning to normal.
However, she was soon saved by nothing short of a miracle…
“A fantastic book. I really like the way the whole story is told through diary entries and I particularly enjoyed the unexpected twists and turns!” Miss Trim
You should do your book review in your English Homework book. However, you may want to demonstrate self-motivation and add one to our blog, too!
