About this book we especially like the ending of the story. All of this story from the beginning to the end was just amazing. This story is different from other children stories because the plot was surprising.
The way the writer tells us how the young boy can interact with the lost thing is special because he can play and have a good moment with it. It shows us that we can be with a different type of person and have a good time with him. It also shows us that if you are with “the lost thing” and nobody notices him!

The Lost Thing is an incredible and interesting book. It is really strange but at the same time it is also very mysterious! We totally enjoyed the fact of no one saw the “thing”, probably because they were too busy with their own lives. We can compare that to real life in which people can not do more than one thing at the same time! We can also repair that most of people do not realize what’s around them because they think they’re not important but those things can be very very interesting!

We loved the story. It was a different story and taught us that no matter if we are a child, an adolescence, an adult or an elder, we have to pay attention to what is around us or we can lose a strange, unique and special thing. It showed that the world in the story looks like the real life, because the real world behind his first beautiful layer, it’s just like that dark and cold world.
We also liked the illustrations, the funny characters and imagination of the writer/illustrator.

I chose this picture of the pool and hotel.
I chose this picture because it reminds me of my summer holidays in 2011. In my holidays in 2011, I went to Alvor, Algarve.
My summer holidays last year, were very relaxing and very interesting because I went to the Algarve with my family and with my parent’s friends and it was boiling.
This picture reminds me of one picture I took.
I enjoyed that holidays because it was my fascinating holidays and i will try to go there again. look’s like me the hotel and the pool of my hotel.
That picture makes me remember my fantastic summer holidays in Quarteira, Algarve.
My summer holidays were really exciting, because I did lots of activities with my friends at a summer camp and then I went to the beach for a week. It was the first time that I visited Quarteira’s Beach and I really enjoyed it, because the water was warm and the sea was fascinating. I want to go there again.
This picture makes me remember the year of 2011, because it´s a puzzle, and our life is like a puzzle. it’s built with lots of pieces, and the last year wasn´t an exception. There were some good moments, and somo less good moments, and I think that this puzzle represents that. There is a lot of confusion and that reminds me of the bad moments, but when we look at the sky with seagulls it makes us feel calm, and for me it represents the good and “soft” moments.
There are some pieces of the puzzle missing, and everyone can interpret it as they want and think it’s the best way, but for me it is the moments that we lost, because we were worried about other things that make us lose those moments. It can be that, or things that we could have done, but we didn’t.
For me this puzzle has everything to represent this year.
I CHOSE THE PHOTO 1D BECAUSE MY LAST YEAR WAS A SPORT YEAR FOR ME. THE SPORT WAS NOT THAT BUT BASKETBALL. I CHOSE THAT PICTURE TOO,BECAUSE IN SPORT WE WIN AND LOSE LIKE IN OUR LIFE. WE HAVE TO KNOW HOW TO WIN AND LOSE AND THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT. IN BASKETBALL WE WORK FOR A TEAM NOT INDIVIDUALY, WE NEED THE OTHER PEOPLE TO WIN,ALONE WE CAN´T DO ANYTHING.
I’ve chosen the photo about Paris because I went there last Summer, in 2011.
In the back ground there is the”Arco do Triunfo”, I’ve been there and it was very exciting. It is very tall. When I was there I felt relaxed. I saw very interesting things and I learned somethings about the city.
It was amazing!
The picture 7c.
Because that photo makes me remember my sporting year. My victories and my losses , in swimming. This photo makes me remember when I was national champion and the errors wich make me better month by month.
I chose this photo because it reminds me of my hotel in summer holidays in Madrid. The hotel was fantastic!!!!! It was very big, with a pool and was very near of the beach. This moment is for me, the best of the year, because in Madrid I saw fantastic things too.
I chose the butterfly because it has a lot of colors and 2011 (for me) was fun, and the colors represent fun because they are so different.
It represent my own life, because I started to do my own things with anybody tell me that I should do. Represent when I was with my friends, at school, cafes, at night.
It’s a symbol of liberty. Now i can do more things with no help, so I have more liberty to do them.
This picture reminds me of 14th July 2011. That day, I went to a pool in a hotel with 5 friends. It was really fun because we were there alone, with no one watching or disturbing us. It was sunny and hot that day. There were two pools, one outside and another indoors and two Jacuzzis. We also went to the gym and took loads of photos, It was a wonderful day and we all enjoyed it very much.
I chose this picture because it reminds me of my holidays in the summer of 2011. I went to Spain with my parents and my sister by car. I stayed there one week. The hotel where I was, was 4* and it was in the line of the sea. It had different restaurants inde it and bars. It had three pools, and I just needed to walk a little to be in the sea. The biggest pool, in the middle had some palm trees, so this image reminds me of my holidays.
I chose the picture of the clouds (2A).
It reminds of my trip to Brazil and of the summer holidays. The year was a lot of fun and complicated too. Those clouds and the palm tree remind me of one photo i took in Brazil, wich was exactly the same. When I look at this picture I think of hapiness and being relaxed, but also of difficulties, and that’s what my 2011 was about. The clouds are moving and changing and in 2011 i tried to change for better. And my summer holidays are very well represented by this picture because they were so relaxing and I just loved them as much as I love this picture.
The photo that reminds me of the 2011 year , is the photo of Paris (3e) . That photo reminds me because i went to Paris last summer holidays . I was then looking to the arco do triunfo . This city is fantastic. This have very important and fantastic monuments . the most spectacular thing is Disneyland and park Asterix .
In the top of Eiffel Tower I could see this place and many other fantastic things .
That was fantastic.

I chose the picture 7C because it reminds me of the vacations that I spent in Brasil, in Spain, in Vila Real and in Peniche. The picture reminds me of that vacation because I spent every day in the pool, swimming, relaxing and reading. It was fantastic.
