A LETTER TO THE AUTHOR OF “ BOY OVERBOARD “
Dear Mr Gleitzman
At Bucklands Beach Intermediate school in New Zealand, our team of four Year 7 classes ( 11 year olds ) are currently studying Human Rights, and as a novel study, we have been reading, studying and researching your novel, Boy Overboard.
We decided that we would use a blog to share the best work from our classes. On this blog, we will publish illustrations,text, reflections and possibly videos later on.
As a public web address, this site can be viewed by anyone, anytime and we hope that we can in some way make people more aware of how refugees live and what their lives are like.
We would appreciate it if you had a look at our blog and if you get some time, you may be able to comment on our work.The address is http://www.boyoverboardteamb.blogspot.com
We never really realized what life could be like for other children our age and how different it could be.
We will look out for your comments.
Cheyenne, Nicole, Nicola, Ellen and Team B
