You can listen to a reading of these chapters here:
Use wordhippo.com to help with any words you are unsure of such as, ‘snob’, ‘hiding’ and ‘veiled’. Make a note of the definition and synonyms of the words selected.
Based on these two chapters, predict what might happen next.
Think about these questions:
Will Danny find his Dad?
If he does, where is he?
Why didn’t he return home?
Will they be able to leave Hazel’s Wood without being caught?
Once you have thought about these questions, have a go at writing your own version of the next chapter of the story.
If you have read this story before, create your own new idea for the next chapter.
