The book is finished!!

Now that we have completed Elephant Run, I want to know what you think! If there was any event that you would change in the book, what would it be?

Also, was there any part that kept you on the edge of your seats?

Hawk's Nest

In the past few chapters we have read, we find out some interesting things about the Hawk's Nest. It is more than what it appears. How? How is this important to Nick and Mya?

Would you like to live in a house like this? Why or why not?

I would like to know how you would feel if you were living in a house like this.

Finally! A new post!

How does the war find Nick in Burma? What does it mean for his stay on the plantation? What are the plans to get him to safety?

Describe what happens instead. If you were Nick, what would be the most frightening part of these events?

I can't wait to see what you think!

Wow! We are so proud of everything that you have found out about Burma and the war. You brought up many important details and interesting facts. Since we now know a little about the culture of where Nick will be living, compare it to the culture of London. How do you think living in such a new culture will affect Nick? What kinds of problems might he have?

I am so excited that you will be reading Elephant Run, it is a great book.  One of the first things I would like you to do is get some background knowledge about Burma.
