Last week we started reading our new novel, Northwood by Brian Falkner.  We read the first 2 chapters and were introduced to the main character Cecelia Undergarment.  She lives in an interesting village called Brookfield in a 6 storey house made of balloons! Our class visualised what the village and house might look like.  Here are some of our drawings.

“Cecelia is a perfectly normal girl.  At least, as perfectly normal as anyone who lived in a balloon house near a dark, enchanted forest could be.  And as normal as anyone who could talk to animals.”

If you could talk to animals, what animal would you talk to and what would you say?
