Similies and smiles!

6P at Stanford Juniors have quite the imagination, like if you put all the world’s geniuses and artists in a room, they’d come up with crazy ideas like this lot have (you’ll see). Last week, their author Ross Montgomery asked them to think of similies (a figure of speech involving the comparison of one thing with another thing of a different kind- its often used to make a description more exciting and believable) So 6P imagined some crazy looking aliens and used similies to help describe them to us boring unimaginative folk…

Hi Ross,

We have really enjoyed the start of your book and are excited to read on. Perijee sounds like an exciting character and Caitlin has a funny personality! Although, we did wonder where the idea about writing  about an alien came from? All of your similes are fantastic and we especially liked this one: his shell was as soft and warm, like candle wax.

Looking forward to your next email.

Annabel, Ruby, Ava and Lilou.

Class 6P
