Yesterday we started reading a new chapter book titled "
The Magic Door Series: The Moon Robber", by Dean Morrissey. I really like this author's style and the fact that he crosses his mythology over between books, both picture and chapter. Some questions to ask...
- Where did Michael, Sarah, and Joey start there adventure? (Sam's toy shop)
- How did they get into the Great Kettles? (the magic door)
- Who did they meet first? (the old lady Videlia Potts)
- What was making the earth shake? (Mogg the giant)
- What machine did the children go in? (the Moon!)
