School:Koroit & District Primary School
Mobile is about a boy called Tim that goes on a bus excursion to see the dinosaurs. On the way they have a crash. When the crash happens Tim gets off the bus and runs to a pay phone and calls 000. When he rang a lady asked him lots of questions like fire, ambulance or police. When the lady asked him the questions he felt very nervous, his teacher was very proud of him because he saved everyone’s life.
I liked this book because it showed you what could happen in real life and you would have to answer these questions like Tim.
I would recommend this book to people who like love courage, revenge and terror stories.
At 2.30 a man came and talked to us about his accident and he taught us how to play wheelchair basketball. First of all we had a practise then we played basketball it was so much fun.
Today we had PJ day. In the afternoon we watched a movie called Gnomeo and Juliet and we ate popcorn. I had so much fun.
Preface is about a girl who tells you her child hood of story and the tradition of story-telling that extends over thousands and thousands of years.
The Sally grandmother always introduced the main idea of the story then the Sally would make up stores from there.
The aboriginal children are the greatest story tellers in the world.
I would recommend this book to people who like different stores. I liked this book because it explains about the aboriginal’s story’s.
The Flying Emu
The Emu was once the most colourful bird in Australia. His feathers were brilliant blue, his huge wings were shades of pink and purple, his body was like spun gold and his feet were bright red with lime green claws.
Some of the other birds thought Emu was a bit much, Emu loved himself.
Every time Emu thought of himself he sang a song:
I love my rainbow feathers,
I love my great big wings,
I love the way my eyes shine,
I’m a wonderful handsome thing!
Or he sang
What a wonderful bird I am,
What a wonderful bird I am,
Forget the rest cause im the best!
Yes, I’m the handsomest.
and then he sang another song
I love my great big feet,
I love my strong fast legs,
I run so fast you eat my dust,
I’m the fastest bird around.
The birds hated emu because he always carried on and on about how beautiful he is.
I would recommend this book to people who like funny stories. I like this book because it is funny and interesting.
There was a time long ago when only human beings could see. All other living things were left in the dark. Australia was filled with bushed animals and reptiles.
The Aboriginals tied snakes around rocks and threw them into the river and flattened every insect they saw. All the time the Aboriginals were being horrible they chanted there silly little song:
Were his big fans,
he’s our man!
At the sacred water-hole fatfella and his mob always built bonfires and gorged themselves on damper, vegetables and any other creature they have killed. They even chew the bones, grinding them to a fine power with there already over worked teeth. Any gristly they spat into Kagaras water-hole.
Then they crouched down among the bushes as they started to sing their song,
Big hunting man!
Greatest in the land!
About the author
Sally Morgan was born in Perth Western Australia, in 1951.She is a full-time painter and writer.
For as long as sally can she wanted to paint and write. When she was at school she was discouraged for her expressing herself through art, because her teachers failed to see the promise in her individual style. It was not untill she researched her family history and discovered her aboriginal identity that she found meaning in he images and gained the confidence to pick up her picks again.

Diary of a would be princess
Diary of a would be princess is about a teenager girl that keeps a diary about herself and about school.
