  1. 1) I think the cover of Storm Boy is appealing because you wonder what will actually happen in the book because it only shows a tiny section of the book.

    2) I like chapter six the best because all of the rough and tough parts are over and you can still wonder what will happen next even if it is at the end of the book.

    3) I think this illustrations are clever because there is a mix of pictures and paintings and I know it would be really hard to paint that well and to take a picture.

    4) I don’t know why finger bone lives on that bit of island it doesn’t make sense to me.

    5) I don’t think it’s fair that the hunters were killing the birds because what did the birds do to them.

  2. #3~ I think the illustrations are quite detailed but could be a bit more spaced out.

  3. 1} I think it is appealing because personally it make me wonder what’s going to happen.
    2} I like chapter 2 the most because he saves the pelicans from the shooters but sadly the parents died.

    7.why is storm boy collecting stones? For his collection

  5. I think the cover is appealing because it has Storm Boy and Mr.Percival.The cover really sets the scene.

    I like chapter 2 as Storm Boy found the three little pelicans in the sanctuary. {Mr.Proud, Mr.Ponder and Mr.Percival}

    The illustrations match where the book is set, at the beach.

    I don’t think its fair that

    7) Create your own evaluation question (check how q1-6 are worded)

    Do you think storm boy should leave or facing the ploblem?

  7. In my opinion I don’t the cover is very appealing because it is dark and dull. My favourite chapter was chapter 6 beacause it is very appealing and interesting. I think the illustrations were not very good as they were to dark and it didn’t make the book any more interesting.

  8. 4) I’m not sure about how Mr Percival got killed in the end of the book because it also said he did everything with Storm Boy and slept in their house so I don’t think it makes sense that he was alone.

  9. I don’t understand how the hunters got into the sanctuary. I thought that you would need a certain type of license to get into it. But overall I am not sure why they would go into the sanctuary because this information does not seem very accurate.

  10. 5) I don’t think its fair that Mr Percival got killed in the end because he was by himself when they do everything together.

  11. 6) My favourite character is Mr Percival because although was not the best looking and he was sick, Mr Percival was kind and took nothing for granted

  12. I don’t think it is fair that Hide-Away took Storm Boy away from friends and family because it is not the best decision and take a 4 year old boy from his friends or other family as he lives away from the civilisation.

  13. My favourite character was Finger Bone as he is different and doesn’t care what other people think about him. Finger Bone is a perfect to all the teens who care too much abut what people think about them!

  14. My favourite setting in the book was… because?

    My favourite setting in the book was the beach because the beach sounded interesting and fascinating as it was described in a way that I have never heard anyone talk.

  15. #4~ I’m not quite sure why the hunters didn’t shoot Mr Percival earlier, if he were irritating them so much why didn’t they do something about it before?

  16. #5~ I don’t think the hunters shooting Mr Percival was fair, they didn’t seem to be getting anything out of shooting the ducks, no money, food or benefit out of it, so what’s the point to it, its just hurting nature.

  17. #6~ My favorite character was by far Mr Percival, it was as if he was my own pelican when I was reading the book.
