Wolf Won't Bite!
Unusual to feel sorry for the wolf in a story, but we did lean that way here! We laughed a lot at the silly things Wolf had to do, especially wearing the big bow, and cheered for him when he finally "snapped". Anothger win for Emily Gravett?

There Are No Cats in this Book
This is a favourite with lots of us. It was a simple story but it made us laugh and we enjoyed the flap and pop-up page. We thought all the cats had their own personality and we helped to wish the three off on their trip. We are glad there ARE cats in this book! Read the latest by our diarist Madeleine, who has written Andre's rather bragging version of what happened! See Star Review on our homepage.

Puffin Peter
We enjoyed this story and liked the great use of colour and texture. We enjoyed guessing what would happen and could have done a better job of describing Paul! See our brilliant pictures of Peter, Paul and the whale in the Greenaway Gallery.

Solomon Crocodile
We enjoyed this story of a cheeky crocodile who tries to have fun by scaring his jungle friends until he comes up against someone bigger and fiercer than he is- the hippo! Then he feels sad and lonely- he needs a friend...... The girls have done some FANTASTIC pictures inspired by the story using lots of different artwork and styles. See them in the Greenaway Gallery Also check out a great review by Isobel and a brilliant diary entry for Solomon by Madeleine, who really captures his personality. Mrs Murrell

Welcome to all you Bromley High Bookworms!
We are shadowing the Greenaway award so that we can be "art critics" and look at how pictures and artwork can be used in a book to help tell the story, create a mood and to make us think. Even though the books are sometimes written for younger children than you, we are looking at them in a more detailed way, and finding the "hidden" layers. I hope you all enjoy it!
