Year 4 Literacy Class Review: Luke’s Way Of Looking

Luke’s Way Of Looking by Nadia Wheatley and Matt Ottley, Hodder Headline, 2001

What happens when you have a great imagination but you can’t use it? Read this book to find out.

This book is about a young boy, Luke, who has a great imagination but his grumpy art teacher, Mr. Barraclough, won’t let him use it. Luke feels like he can’t share his ideas and he is upset.

My favourite part of the book is when Luke paints a watermelon; he makes it look 3D and colourful.

At the end Mr Barraclough finally sees Luke’s way of looking and Luke finally finds his confidence.

The illustrations help because they show you how Luke sees things and what he is feeling.

The moral of the story is to always be yourself and it doesn’t matter what other people think.

This colourful book will make you feel happy and creative and I recommend it for 7+
