Homework w/c 19.4.21

Our Class Novel this term will be:

Who Let the Gods Out? by Maz Evans

 

The Blurb

We all know that the best place to get a sneak-peek into the plot, characters and setting of a book is to have a look at the blurb on the back cover. Here is the blurb below for you to read and have a think about:

 

"A shooting star crashes to earth and changes Elliot's life forever. The star is Virgo - a young Zodiac goddess on a mission. When the pair accidentally unleash the wicked death daemon Thanatos, they turn to the old Olympian gods for help. But after centuries of cushy retirement on earth, are Zeus and his crew up to the task?"

 

If there are any words that you don't understand in the blurb you can find out their meaning by asking someone at home, using a dictionary or going to this online dictionary.

 

Wow! I'm hooked already. I have so many questions and ideas buzzing through my head, and I'm sure you do too. 

Here are some of the questions I have:

Who is Elliot?

What does he look like?

 

Your task is to write 5 more questions based on the blurb.

Then choose one of the characters mentioned (Elliot, Virgo or Zeus) and draw them from your imagination. There's no need to google them and there's no right or wrong answers!
