Children's writing: The Giant - by Alicia



Alicia, you used this picture to spark your imagination to write this wonderful story. I felt great sadness by the time I got to the end of this; the giant ends up outside a museum. It made me think about all my visits to museums to stare at dinosaurs and statues.

You have really built up a fantastic image of this figure by layering lots of description using well-chosen adjectives and figurative language (scowling face / solitary / his eyes became as red as the blood in our body / spiky, abundant grass / fossil-grey / coin-grey / angry as a tiger).


Thank you so much for sharing this.
