    This week, we read about a boy who did not satisfied about his father dead. It such an interesting story where the story is set in Norwich,England. You can imagine yourself at there when you read this book, it describe about the place. The author,Pat Moon likes to use a flash back scene for example the story flashes back to Joe remembers when he and his fathers together went to McDonald's while his father is still alive.The languages and the words that the author use in this book also is a very simple and very easy to understands. We also find a lots of new words that we want to share with you, check our NEW WORDS list. This book is better than last week, we want to know what happen next , sometimes it become suspend and excited for it. At the end of the story, it quite fun because Mrs Longleat man has became his tutor and he have to accept what happen. 

Although we love our father, but we have to try accept if he no longer exist. Everyone will die, but we don't know when, don;t blame people about what happen. This is the moral value that we want to share with you : 


1-Don't judge a book by its cover.
2-Man proposes,God disposes.
3-We must believe that our life only a short journey.
4-We should never give up to maintained or sustained our right and our family's right.
5-We must be brave to speak out about what we thinks is right.
