Reading Response Journal
Author: jane thomson
Today I read about a book called mei-ling and the giant
I feel happy about what I read today because at the end the giant showed her where the ginseng where
My favourite character was giant because he saved mei-ling from the wolves
I would feel surprised if the same thing that happened to my character, happened to me because mei-ling was tied to a tree and there were wolves that were coming after her
I think if the author decided to write another part to this story this is what will happen mei-ling will get home sick and will want to go home
