We read and enjoyed 'Boot' by Shane Hegarty, our class text during the Spring term 2021. The main character, Boot, encountered many set backs in a quest to find Beth, his owner. His dangerous adventures allowed him to find
*where home is
*what friends look like
*why humans are so leaky and weird.
Our comic strips show different characters from the story facing risky situations. They have to decide whether to take 'the risk', knowing that it could put them in a hazardous place. Their values of friendship and loyalty develop alongside their emotions. Their risk taking pays off, when Boot is reunited with Beth.
By the end of the story Boot is not a 'Robot O Fun', to be owned by Beth anymore, but he has found out who he belongs with - his robot friends, Red, Noke and Poochy.
