Explore it – Second half of this section - Read the extract together again.

Think about how it makes you feel, what you like/dislike about it. Does it remind you of anything you know in stories/real life? How? Think about how it is written. Do any parts of the extract really stick in your mind? Which words and phrases do you like best? What do you like about them? Do they look or sound interesting? Do they help you make a picture in your mind?
