“It’s not my fault!”

       Have you ever said this before? I did. I am sure you did too. Throughout our growth, we may sometimes say this because of making it as an excuse or thinking in different angles.

 This is a book about a 10-year-old girl, Kitty. All the stories in this book are about what happened to her with her family and her friends or classmates around her. From Kitty’s thought, most of the nuisances and troubles caused are not her fault.  She disagrees with what the adults think. Her experience reminds me what I experienced during her age. We tend to think from our side rather than the others. We sometimes put the blame on the others whenever there is something unpleasant happen. We do so because we sometimes really do not want to bear the responsibility, but sometimes we just have different perception, especially among children.   

  If you want to know if Kitty is just the one who does not want to bear the responsibility or just has different perception to the events around her. Just go to read this book and you will find you may have similar experience and thinking like her.   This is an interesting storybook worth reading.

This book is about a story of a boy who is always called ‘It’ by his parents.  Actually, his name is David.  He stays with 5 different families before he is 18.  Why?  It is because he is a F-child.  A F-child is a foster child. 

David becomes a foster child because his mum has psychiatric problem and therefore he is terribly treated by his parents.  You cannot imagine the way his parents treat him.  Every day, he has his ears yanked and he is ordered to stand but never may he speak, breathe or move a single muscle, and he is even not allowed to eat any food at home but the left over in the garbage bin….

      He therefore has to leave his parents and start to stay with different foster parents, leading an unstable life without a sense of security.  He has struggle before he can make his decision to tell the truth of what his parents have done to him because he really loves his parents no matter what they have done to him.  He has various experiences in foster families.  The people around him resent his presence and try to force him to shame.  Many people believe that foster children are trouble and unworthy of being loved just because they are not part of a real family.  This is unfair to those foster children who are already suffering from their misfortune.

David tries very hard to begin his adventure in searching for love.  Does he find the real love finally?  Do you want to know what he has experienced in five foster families?  Do you want to know more about fostering?  If yes, just go to the school library for this book.  After reading it, you will soon find how lucky you are staying with your parents.

If you were a rich farmer, would you feel happy and satisfied?  Yes, I would but what if someone kept on stealing from you?  The three farmers in this book were furious because of the thief Mr Fox.

Boggis a chicken farmer, Bunce a duck-and-goose farmer, Bean a turkeys-and-apple farmer were rich farmers, but they were not happy.  They were the meanest farmers who were unhappy and annoyed by the thief – Mr Fox.  They gathered and planned to work together to get him as they knew they could never do so if they worked alone. 

Mr Fox was not as cunning as the other foxes.  Mrs Fox said he was not just clever but also fantastic.  Every night he went to get food for his wife and his four little foxes with his sharp nose, ears and night-eyes.  What he did every night to the three farmers had already made them wild with rage.   Mr Fox was too clever for them to catch.  He would rather die than surrender to them with guns waiting and aiming at him outside his hole. 

The big night came for the farmers.  After a flashlight towards the hole, what they found on the ground was a blood-stained fox’s tail.  Mr Fox was hurt but not yet killed.  The three farmers thought he would starve to death if they kept waiting outside the hole.  They never thought that Fantastic Mr Fox was hurt though, he had great a feast with his family and friends underground and even thought of building an underground village and found no need to go outside while Boggis, Bunce and Bean were still waiting outside.

It is such an interesting story about a clever fox and three stupid farmers. You will like it and cannot stop reading it once you start the first line.
