You're Gonna Go Bananas

If you've yet to read WILLY AND HUGH by Anthony Browne then you are in for a real treat.WILLY AND HUGH is the story of a Willy, a lonely Ape who, after many unsuccesssul attempts, finds an unlikely friend in Hugh. Once befriended, the two people-watch in the park, go to the library (yeah, libraries) and visit the people in the zoo. You'll not only enjoy the storyline, but the illustrations will amaze you...just check out the detail on Willy's sweater vest, amazing!

Writing is a series of choices...

"There is nothing wrong, really, with any word-all words are good, but some are better than others"- William Strunk Jr. and E.B. White

In your notebook, write about the choices you conciously make while you are writing.
