I think inventing things is good because it might help people in the future and you might become famous for what you in vented
benjamin was living in the time of the gold rush which brought lots of immigrants from Northern Europe, china and the american continent
Wow! 4J what an amazing range of thoughts and ideas about the characters! I love the way you have all taken different perspectives and had some great ideas about how society has changed over time.
This is for bonus question
I would choose to live in 1908 because in evelyns, there were cracker night.
Excellent response Randy. I would love to go to a cracker night too.
If I could go back in time I would choose Jen's decade because I would kind of have a experience about what world war 2 would have been like.
I would also like that decade because I would know about brick pits.
Excellent Shanjida. I think your very brave to want to experience WW2 I think it was a very sad time for many Australians.
I like Bridie because she likes to sneak on her sister and her sisters friend.Her society tells me in that time there wasn't any life savers to save them from drowning in the canal
Fabulous response Saima. Do you think there will be lifesavers at the canal when we visit it on our excursion?
I would love to go to Victoria's time because I would like to try doing my bee's wax on the road. Also I would like to go to Evelyn's time because helping them build the canal would be great! Your Truely Sariya
What do you mean by bees wax Sariya?
Ok now I get it... I think you meant business and were refering to the dunny can man!?
if i could go back in time my decade will be in 1928 s0 i can see the big fig tree and the terror houses and the horse carrageis and other things to explore.And how to survive without toilets.
Terrace houses not terror Falefa. Excellent comments and thoughts :-)
I misunderstood when you read the book I thought you said terror houses. Sorry Miss Johnson!
If I could go back in time I choose victoria because she is sneaky and I can ride horses and steam train.
Fantastic Afrin. Did you know you can get a steam train some weekends. Go to this website to find out more: http://www.trainworks.com.au/visit
I would live in berties decade because there is not that hitting or bulling.
Thanks for your response Rhythm. Do you really think there was no hitting or bullying back then? Maybe the story didn't show it but I'm sure there was!
Ms Johnson I need to ask you a question.A long time ago why the girls were not allowed to go to school?
Lovely to see that you are thinking about and questioning the themes in the book. Maybe you need to do a bit of research to find out why girls didn't go to school. Here is a website to get you started. http://www.dictionaryofsydney.org/entry/education
We can talk more about this in class today.
From Ms Johnson :-)
I would live in Bridies's decade because I can explore with Bridie,kath and her friend
It was so interesting reading your opinions about the characters and time periods in this book 4J. For an older person like me, it is so exciting to see school children having a blog on the internet! I'm looking forward to reading more soon.
Wow 4J look my Aunty Kerry (Mrs Claire's sister!) has commented on our blog! She lives in a place called Sandy Beach which is a bit north of Coffs Harbour. Maybe we could ask her some questions about where she lives and what her life was like when she was a child?
the thing i really want to see is the big fig tree because all the characters went on it.
When was the big fig tree planted?
Why did you create the book my place?
in the excursion i want to see the big house to see how old it is?
In the place excursion I want to see the big tree and canal.
Wow! You all have such great things to say about the characters in your book. There's a lot going on in the story and you all have found so much to talk about. As far as going back in time, I think I'm with Ishan when he says he likes it when there were toilets! But definitely not war - wars are always heartbreaking. Keep on talking 4J
Look 4J my other Aunty Felicity has left youa comment. We should definitely reply to her. Her comment is very thoughtful... :-)
Hi Felicity thank you for agreeing to my text i also agree with you about the war it is heartbreaking :D :D

My favourite character is Charles because he is a smart person and good in fighting.
