Mr Walker is now reading Who Let the Gods Out? by Maz Evans. It is a funny adventure book about a boy called Elliott who has a hard life; his mum is ill and they are very poor. The house is going to be taken away on Friday. All seems lost until he meets Virgo a God who is on a mission to Earth…which leads to some ‘out of this world’ adventures!
I have just started Wonder by R J Palacio after hearing great things about it from the children – and Mr Thurston – last year. I know that there is a film coming out soon of the book and I like to read the book first. I think it is going to make me emotional as it is about a boy whose face is disfigured and how he copes with life being different.
