Literacy Homework Wednesday 25th August

Published Wednesday, August 25, 2010.

Due Friday 27th August

In class we have been enjoying the story ‘Licked’ by Paul Jennings. Your job is to write a review of the story. That means you write about what you enjoyed about the story, what you didn’t enjoy (if anything!), and the writers’ style. Do this in your Literacy homework books. You can add a drawing on the side with no lines if you would like to. We will share your story reviews in class on Friday. I have put some questions below that will help you think about what to write about.

  • What is the story about? (keep this short!)
  • What were your favourite parts?
  • What did you think about the characters?
  • Do you think Paul Jennings is a good author? Why?

Here is a copy of my review of 'Licked'. Read it for ideas, but don't copy it please. I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Friday.

"Licked" is all about a kid named Andrew and his Dad. His Dad's a nice guy, but is bit strict about table manners. The story is short, and has a bit of a messy ending when Andrew plays a dastardly trick on his Dad to make him ‘crack’ in front of his boss, Mr Spinks.

The scene when Andrew’s Dad’s boss comes for comes for dinner is disgusting, but hilarious. Andrew misbehaves in the most awful ways, but his Dad stays cool, until the secret weapon makes him finally blow his top.

I loved the way Paul Jennings describes the strict, yet playful dad. Andrew is in awe at the way his Dad can stay cool while he is doing the most disgusting things at the dinner table. The way Paul Jennings describes Dad’s anger as it builds to boiling point is brilliant.

I think Paul Jennings is an excellent author. He builds suspense into his writing and you just keep on wanting to read more to find out what happens. He is funny, and he writes in an informal style that is very entertaining. I am looking forward to reading more of his stories.

Here is a link to Paul Jennings' website (he wrote 'Licked'). If you click on 'Audio', Paul will read you a different story. How is 'Little Squirt' similar to 'Licked'?
