What would be some of the advantages (for you, your parents & for the child) of sending your two year old brother or sister away?What would be the disavantages or the tings that you would miss?
Because it is a verse novel you can read the story quite quickly, but do you need to read it a little more slowly to really understand the images and ideas that the poetry suggests?
Did you enjoy the style of writing? Tell us why?
The book took us to a time when boys and girls were treated differently. Do any of these difference still exist?
