What is the first book you remember reading?

Paul Jennings-Misery Guts

Is there a book you think everyone should read and why?

To kill a Mockingbird- A terrific insight into equality and values and puts modern era problems into perspective.

The life of Pi- A fun book about how to put a positive on any situation, creative thinking but a scary thought to be stuck on a boat with a tiger!! 

Has there been a character you really liked and why?

Again Atticus Finch, he has patience and great virtue. He always shows respect and is a terrific role model.

He also represented Western Australia at the 2009 NAB AFL Under-18 Championships, averaging 15 disposals per game at the carnival.

What is the first book you remember reading?

The Diggingest Dog – Al Perkins

Is there a book you think everyone should read and why?

1984 – George Orwell. It’s an amazing projection of how things can go wrong when society is allowed to devalue the individual.

Has there been a character you really liked and why?

Macbeth – Shakespeare. Such a flawed and ultimately tragic character whose misdeeds (literally) haunt him.
