A family went to the zoo. They looked at the animals in the cage.
What have they done ?
At the end of my English classeroom, my teacher has distributed a album for each of us. I have received this one. The purpose is to read it and explain the story and how we can use it in a teaching situation. Personnaly, I read it twice, because the first time, I didn't really like it. So I wanted to make sure, that I all understand before writing my chronicle.
I don't know why, but the story remind me something, maybe I read it when I was a child... The story is not very interessant... I mean, it's good, but finally... I don't know. The story is a little bored ! Usally, I love album, but here, no. It doesn't inspire me ! I think the more important in the book are the words games and the text's irony. However, I maybe not good enough to understand them...
I don't really like too the illustrations, neither the characters... I mean picture are rather easy. The featurces are a little rough... Personnaly, they don't are a dream for me. And it's exactly the same with the characters. They are just like a normal family... But, despite that, I don't recognize me in them. They're not very sympathic. But maybe, younger like them...
The end is strange. I mean it's a little came totally out of field... Yet, it's announced in the summary. But after all, apart from the last page it's never discussed. I have prefered that this comparasion between human's thoughts and animal's thoughts was more present. Here, only the last picture invits to a real reflexion, actually it's my opinion...
Good but not wonderful !
