What did you think about the book and why did you think of that?
I thought that the story was fun, exciting, sad and most of all happy.
Sad because: It was sad because he left without saying good bye to his large family.
Fun because: It was fun because he travelled to other places that didn’t just have hot weather, but some were cold, windy, snowy and even rainy.
Happy because: It was happy because Sunny came back to his beloved family.

This week we studied Emily Gravett. She is an author from Brighton. Did you know she used to live on a bus? Emily Gravett writes and illustrates her own stories. Here is a movie of my reading group presenting a role play of Meerkat Mail. I hope you like it!
