And now…she needs some help!
Jacqueline Harvey would like to ask BISS students to be her consultants.
That means, she wants your ideas, to help her make decisions for the story.
Jacqueline Harvey says: I’ve been writing about a Chinese family with the surname Wang. There’s a grandma, a grandpa, an eldest son and a youngest son (and the sons’ wives). They are a very good family, except one of the wives might be a baddie! The family owns an amazing Acrobatic Troupe in Beijing. In the story, they are going to sell the Acrobatic Troupe and use the money to open a school, just like BISS! The school will be called The Bright Star Academy.
- Can you help me think of a fantastic name for the Acrobatic Troupe? It can’t be The Beijing Acrobats. It has to be more exciting. Can you think of a name that has something to do with stars? Are there any English or Chinese words that have a meaning related to stars? Can you suggest a name for the acrobatic troupe?
2. Do you have an Ayi? One of the children in my story will have an Ayi. Can you tell me how your Ayi helps you and your family? What kind of relationship do you have with your Ayi?
If you’d like to give Jacqueline Harvey some ideas, please leave a reply.
