We read the story 'Night Noises' written by Mem Fox.
In the story the main character, an old lady, is asleep in her chair, dreaming about her youth.
She wakes when visitors arrive to give her a
surprise 90th birthday.
We loved the words Mem Fox used when describing the main character:
'Her hair was as wispy as cobwebs in ceilings.'
'Her bones were as creaky as floorboards at midnight.'
We think those are sentences that add impact
to the writing.
Here are our descriptions of the oldest people WE know!
