Year 4 Literacy Class Review: The Shaggy Gully Times

The Shaggy Gully Times by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley, Harper Collins, 2007, $22.49


It is the funniest book you will ever read guaranteed. This book is about a town of animals. It is written in a style of a newspaper. Bruce Whatley has made it look like a newspaper that the animals made. It looks like it’s been scrunched up like a real newspaper and it also has a crossword and find-a-words etc.

 It is full of funny stories. My favorite part of the book was when the animals pooped on the zookeeper.

 It has more words than pictures so I would recommend this book for people who like words more than pictures. One of the best things about this book is that when you read it you find little things. Then the next time you read it you find other little things that you haven’t seen before which I really like.
