For the last couple of weeks 5/6J have been reading, studying, discussing, pondering, theorising and writing about “The Watertower” and its sequel “Beneath the Surface”, written by Gary Crew and Illustrated by Steve Woolman.
We spent hours analysing the illustrations, searching for clues, trying to piece together the story… What happened to Spike and Bubba? This is an excellent book to capture readers, as the ending leaves the story wide open for individual interpretations… Even if this is a little frustrating!
The class were asked to continue the story of “Beneath the Surface”, and everyone let their ideas run wild, thoroughly enjoyable to read. Well done guys!
So tell me 5/6J… What do YOU think happened to Spike and Bubba?
