Sleepy Bear's Book Club - THE MAGICIAN'S ELEPHANT

Hi Book Buddies,

I hope you are enjoying THE MAGICIAN'S ELEPHANT. I have read the first three chapters and I really like the story. I feel sorry for Peter. He is all alone in the world even though he lives with Vilna Lutz. I'm not sure why he is living with Vilna Lutz. I know Peter doesn't have a mom or dad and he doesn't know where his sister is but why Vilna Lutz? I wonder who he is.

Did you notice how the story has a beginning like JACK AND THE BEANSTALK? Remember how Jack was sent by his mom to buy food but he traded the cow for magic beans instead? Hey, both stories have magic in them, too!

I want to know what happened to Peter's family. Why did they die?

I wonder if Baltese is a real place. I'm going to try to find it on a map.

There are a lot of tricky words in the story. I'm writing them down on sticky-notes and putting them on the refrigerator so I can study them and use them to learn them. One tricky word is audacity 0n page 2. I'm going to go look it up in my dictionary.

Well, I hope you write back to share your thinking and your questions with me about THE MAGICIAN'S ELEPHANT.

Your Book Buddy,

Sleepy Bear
