For the next two weeks, our whole school is reading The Story of a Seagull and the Cat Who Taught her to Fly by Luis Sepulveda. We are so excited about this One Book One School project!
In the first section of the book, we've met Kengah and Zorba. Kengah, a seagull covered in sludge from an oil spill, lays an egg and extracts three promises from Zorba the cat: don't eat the egg, look after the egg until the chick is born, and teach the chick to fly. Teach the chick to fly! How is a cat going to teach a chick to fly?
What do you think is going to happen? If you were Zorba the cat, how would you approach this challenge?
