The Lost Homework


Average rating

4 out 5

72 reviews

In this new addition to our 'Travellers' Tales' series, Sonny devotes his weekend to helping his neighbours and fellow Travellers with a variety of tasks. He uses many skills, from telling a story at a wedding, to restoring a caravan. In fact, the only thing he doesn't do over the weekend is his homework - his workbook is missing!



This story says about Sonny missing is school homework notebook after his busy family weekend. Worried about getting in trouble at school, he confesses to the teacher about his lost notebook. It really shows the honesty of a child. Yes, I really recommend this book to my friends.

There’s a boy who had a busy weekend and didn’t get time to do his homework. On Monday his mum gave him a note to give to his teacher but turns out that she worked out that the boy did all of the other subjects on his busy weekend except from his homework. I’d reccomend it to someone else.

It was a fiction book. Sonny lives on a Traveller community site with his family and he’s super excited because this weekend they’re going to a family wedding. There’s so much to prepare: the horse needs to be shoed, everyone has to get their outfits ready and the cart has to be cleaned because the bride and groom will ride in it! Sonny is kept so busy by the preparations and the wedding itself that he doesn’t realise until too late that he’s lost his homework book. Disaster! Yet when he goes to school and tells everyone about the weekend, his kind teacher points out that he’s done plenty of learning in the course of his weekend: planning the route and calculating the journey time, performing on stage, sewing and painting and all manner of other things.Who'd have thought all this homestuff would've been school stuff too? I recommend this book.
