Last week, Reading Group C read "The Ngarara" by Melanie Drewery, from School Journal Part 1, Number 5, 2007. Then they set about writing a narrative with the Ngarara as one of the characters, based on what they had learned about him in the story. Here is Elijah's narrative.
Once there was an old and creaky house. Living in the old house was an old, happy man. However, he didn't know that his house was in the woods where the Ngarara lived.
One stormy night, the old man wanted to go for a walk. He opened the door and there was a flash of lightning and in the flash, he saw the Ngarara! He was very frightened. He ran back into his house, slammed his door and locked it. Then the Ngarara flew up to the roof. He blew hard and the roof fell off.
The Ngarara flew inside the house and then saw that the old man was wearing a uniform. It was a Air Force uniform, complete with a walkie talkie. He used the walkie talkie to call the Air Force. They came as fast as thought with their jets and fired at the Ngarara. That was the end of the Ngarara.
