Rowan the Strange is as wierd as the name suggests!
Starts off with Rowan breaking his sisters fingers because she was playing the piano, then he cuts himself with a flick knife. His family decide to admit him and he's diagnosed with schizophrenia. His family leave him in the care of a German doctor von Metzer, bear in mind that this is the start of World War 2 and everyone hates the'Jerrys'. To cure him, the doctor gives him electric shocks. Does anyone else think these Carnegie books are downright wierd?

Do you think the carnegie activities is fun?
i think carnegie IS fun because we get to go onto the computers and do things to do with carnegie. Although it is set work, it is really fun and i enjoy all of it. We have done things like making presentations and then presenting them to the rest of the group. We have made our own covers for a chosen book and are in the middle of making a plan of a movie. Carnegie has been a very enjoyable experience and I am sure the rest of the group will agree.
