Little Hero by Kim Savory
We 1st meet Jason when his parents are arguing, seemingly about him. This leaves us wondering whether or not this is a regular occurrence. Jason goes to his bedroom but he can still hear them arguing. What are they arguing about? It seems that his father wants him to be more mature and grown up. He accuses Jason's mother of smothering him. When Jason withdraws to his room that is when the adventure begins....
Link with: 'Where the Wild Things Are' by Maurice Sendak
PSHE: Discuss how arguments make us feel. How do we feel when parents argue. Write a letter to Jason's parents offering advice about reconciliation and how to treat Jason.
Questions for discussion: What has caused the argument? Is the man Jason's Father or Step Father? How do we know? Do his parents argue often? Should they be arguing where he can hear? Why? How do you think Jason feels at this point? Do we have any evidence to show how he is feeling? How would we show this in his writing?
Describe the moment Jason picks up the sword.
Use show not tell to describe the monster.
Develop sentence structures to build up tension.
Create internal monologues for Jason.
Focus on describing the shift between the real and imaginary world.
